July 15 in my garden is all about the lilies. I have lilium regale blooming right now and lilium longiflorum about to open, but the real stars at this particular moment are the Asiatics.
I like the black and white combination above. The white is called ‘Navona’ and the black is called ‘Landini.’
And then I have the totally insane ‘Pink Giant’ that I’ve posted about before. It’s towering over my garden, as well as starring in a vase in my front hall, thanks to all those broken-off stalks that I didn’t manage to stake before this week’s beating rain.Michele Owens on July 15, 2008 at 5:05 am, in the category Real Gardens.
