Lillies

Zone NE62 5YF | Margaretkorol added on July 18, 2018 | Answered

I’ve bought some lillies a few years ago, I bought pink yellow and orange but the past few years I’ve had a fantastic show of burgundy colour lillies. Will they stay this colour now as I’ve never seen any like this colour before

Wow, that is an impressive show of color! What has happened here is very interesting, and not common but not quite rare either.

What happened in this case is that the originals were an unstable variety, so this led them to revert back to a lineage further back in the line. There will be nothing that you can do to bring them back to their original color, unfortunately. This is a stunning look for them, though.

Thank you so much for your reply but I’ve also been asked what are the names of these lillies
