    Love them but have had to get rid of most of them from my garden. Assuming you’ve been battling them to begin with, are you finding red lily beetle to be not as bad this year?

      Sue, I’ve been lucky so far – fingers crossed! I’ve not had a problem with lily leaf beetles.

    They’re beautiful. A number of years ago, I exiled all the lilies from my garden, mostly because of the depredations of the red lily beetle. In the years since, the evidence of these beetles has lessened in my part of Maine. And right now I have a lovely pale yellow lily blooming in the woods on the other side of my driveway — where I dumped lily bulbs and other garden waste at an earlier time. Maybe I’ll dig it up and return it to the garden.

      Jean, your survivor lily may be resistant to the red lily beetle. At the very least, it certainly is determined. I would definitely find it a place in the garden.

    What a great color. Sometimes I find the colors of Asiatic lilies to be a bit too intense but that one is wonderful.

      Debbie, I agree. The mahogany lily in the background is a bit intense but the dark shade does not scream ‘Look at me’ as much as the lighter, bright Asiatic shades. The one in the photo will bloom for at least two weeks, sometimes longer.

    What a beautiful display of bold pink! Neighbors have the hot yellow ones around here, which are too much for me, but this lovely pink is great.

      Laurrie, I like the color punch these Asiatics bring to the garden during the heat of summer. They are also one of the easiest plants in my gardens. Plant once, stake once since they are in an area that gets wind, enjoy a lot, cut back once.
