LILIACEAE, The lily family
Early summer’s best bulb. These flower heads are metallic balls of stars, 12″ across. Summer bulbs are such a great idea. They are easy to over look when planing and planting, but they add so much summer to a garden. Callas, cannas, dahlias, oriental and asiatic lilies, martagon lilies! It you haven’t enjoyed Sargent’s ‘Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose’ for a while, do. It could hold one over for a little while longer though this dull, chill weather.
