Asiatic Lily (Lilium) Centerfold
Why would one not love this beauty?
Centerfold is the name of the Asiatic Lily.
She grows well for me whereever I put her. Under the big Maple tree, in full sun by Don Juan or just mixed in a mess of lilies and daylilies. The drought we have had this year, has not affected her.
I planted her(25 bulbs) last fall and am enjoying the show this summer. I didn't expect much being the first year, yet she really suprised me. The maroon stripes from the inside out, against the pure white petal are fascinating.
This one is a keeper!
