2009 Custom Garden Designs

Lilies are a great way to add bold color. Unlike a Daylily where each flower lasts one day, Asiatic and Oriental Lily Bulbs last 3 to 4 weeks.

Also because there are different types of Lilies each having a specific bloom time, we can design either an English garden or a simple garden which has color changes each month for three months.

For example we would have a June Lily:

Shown above is the Asiatic "Brushstroke" Lily, which blooms in June in the northern states.  The Brushstroke Lily is an Asiatic Lily that will liven up a perennial garden in June.

Then a July Lily:

Shown above is the Asiatic "Moneymaker" Lily, which blooms in July in the northern states.  The Moneymaker Lily is an Asiatic Lily that blooms in July and will bridge the gap in blooming lilies between most Asiatic Lilies that bloom in June and the Oriental Lilies that bloom in August.  This is a great way to have three straight months of blooming lilies in a perennial garden.

And finally an August Lily:

Shown above is the Oriental "Sorbonne" Lily, which blooms in August in the northern states.  The Sorbonne Lily is an August blooming Oriental Lily and is a great accent to the Russian Sage that blooms in an August perennial garden.
