Henryi and Henry

Lilium henryi

I haven’t made too much progress with my Henry garden, but Lilium henryi blooms in the Herb Bed in front of the house where I can see it morning, noon and night. I love the recurved petals, the golden hue and the extravagant filaments and anthers.

So elegant. Both these lilies came from Old House Gardens and have done beautifully for several years now.  Only the lilies in the Herb Bed bloom because the deer get to the lilies in the Lawn Beds just before they bloom. One mother deer brought her twin fawns and showed them just how delicious a Casa Blanca bud could be. Very nutritious I am  sure.

Other lilies from Old House Gardens that get to bloom are  the L. martagon ‘Album’ with dainty white flowers, and Black Beauty which go so beautifully with my bee balm.
