I love to see these but I find the scent a bit overpowering.

29 Jul, 2010

 

stunning arent they ;o)

OH doesn't like the scent of any indoors, but I don't cut them anyway! ;-)

i cant have them indoors either barbara, give me headache and feel sick, but im ok with them in garden thankfully ;o)

Some people don't like sweet pea scent, either...such a shame.

30 Jul, 2010

 

i love them and they dont bother me, so i have them indoors ;o))

That's good. I know that 'Stargazer' lilies can affect people - so I suppose that any scented lilies would, too.

30 Jul, 2010

 

yes all scented lilies barbara, i find them over powering, they have them in shop at work sometimes and 3 of us end up with headache and feel ill ;o(
today they had scented white peony which were beautifull and such a lovely scent to, i was ok ;o)

They sound great! I haven't got any peonies - I have a tree peony that hasn't flowered yet....I don't think the flowers will have a scent, though. :-(

30 Jul, 2010

 

strange cause i have a tree and had it two years now and no sign of a flower barbara,think your right dont have a scent

30 Jul, 2010

 

My friend gave it to me 2 years ago, when it was about 6" tall...it's up to about 3' now. I'm hoping for flowers next year. I have no idea what colour they'll be, though. Do you know about yours?

30 Jul, 2010

 

mine is "Lu He Hong" is about 3ft also and should get deep pink flowers barbara, it seems fine and has grown more leaves and stems this year but thats it ,

30 Jul, 2010

 

If mine turns out to have yellow flowers - what on earth shall I do? It's in the pink and mauve bed. :-((( Yours sounds lovely.... xx

31 Jul, 2010

 

i do hope its not yellow either for you barbara, iv been trying to find out if anything i can do to encourage flowers, wonder if its my soil, xx

31 Jul, 2010

 

I think it's called 'patience' with these......

31 Jul, 2010

 

yes think your right barbara, been reading up on others with them online and seems some have had them years and not a flower ;o((

31 Jul, 2010

31 Jul, 2010

 

We'll compare notes next spring. If mine has a yellow flower, I shall scream and it'll have to be moved. :-(((

31 Jul, 2010

31 Jul, 2010
