Yet another lily.


Yet another lily. (Lilium vivaldi)

I love the colours in this one. It is bronzy red on the edge fading to orangy yellow in the middle. There are so many different types of lily.

Do you have any trouble with lily beetles Chris, my lilys are been eaten to shreds by them and I am vigilant ,check every day, think they hid when I am anywhere near by

We had an invasion of Lily beetle for the first time this year. I spotted them over a month ago. We were catching them and also getting rid of the larvea as much as we could. We were due to go away for a week at the time so resorted to some spray that the local hardware shop sold us, so we used it and it did the trick. We havn't seen sign of the beetles since. It depends whether you are prepared to use sprays. We can't get the ones that I see advertised in UK, which say that they are safe, but I know that bees etc can be affected. Are you looking under the leaves for the black blobs which is the larvae covered in excrement (yuk). You need to get rid of these as well as beetles. I've read advice to wash down well with a jet of water or soapy water as well.

I planted out two easter lilies...and they were quietly scenescing when I noticed a flash of red!! I immediately cut the stems at the soil line. and checked out my other lilies with a careful eye... picked and destroyed all beetles...and my pride..my big Vermeer is setting tons of buds...but I'm still keeping an eye...

I had trouble with lily beetles too. Found the best solution was to keep a jar of soapy water nearby and throw them in when caught. They are good at hiding so best to be vigilant and get the larvae.
Love the sunset type colour of your lily!
