WOW! My Lily Lollipop (or is it Lollypop ? I see it written in both ways on the net. ) has two flowers on one stem. I was afraid there wouldn’t be any because of the lily beetle.
I read the plant profile for Lilium Lollypop. It says the stem is 60-70 cm, flower head size is large. Mines are very small. The stem is only about 15 cm. The flowers are smaller than the ones in my friend’s garden. I’m happy even with this baby size plant and flowers
I’m sure there will be more of them next summer. The plants will be strong standard height and the flowers will be large.
Look how beautiful ! Yesterday on my evening walk with Canelo I walked by my friend’s house. Yes, it is the same woman who last summer gave me three to four plants of this beautiful lily. As she didn’t remember the name of the lily I thought it was a ‘Brazilian Hybrid Oriental Lily’. Now I’m pretty sure it’s a ‘Lollipop’. We have become friends. Also because now she has a dog too. Anyway, she was in her garden and I asked if I could take some pictures of the lilies as mine are not yet in bloom. Oh yes, of course she said. I told her I’m not sure what’s wrong with mine. They are not as high as hers and have only a few flower buds. There were more of them but the lily bugs have destroyed them. She said they probably will grow into full height next year. I hope they will. I hope one of mine will flower also.
