The Queen is back.. and she is not alone this time.

Despite the unbearable heat not everything is bad news these days! The Queen is blooming again! but this is not the same plant I showed you in the previous entry, there are two Gloire du temple sut lot plants in my pond. This Queen looks a bit "tousled"..

Day one


Day two: The shell pink color begins to fade


Day three she is completely white


I said the Queen was not alone, this is one of her heiresses: Pink Pom Pom. She looks a lot like the Queen but her pink color is more intense and doesn't change. This lily was hybridized by the american breeder Tony Moore in 2012 and her parentage includes of course Gloire du temple sur lot. She looks tousled too...this is very common in this family of lilies, I don't know why...sometimes flowers look perfect but other times they look shrivelled.

Day one


Day 2


Day 3


There is a second princess in the pond but she's refusing to bloom for the time being...I always read that these extra-double lilies aren't very popular due to their low flowering rate and often untidy flowers but they are my favourite lilies anyways!

See you next time!

    1. Amy, these lilies are large and vigorous varieties, they spread 5 or 6 feet, the flowers are large too 5 or 6 inches. Thanks for visiting my blog!
