Conca d' Or hybrid lily

The label said OT Hybrid Lily Conca D' Or
I say "HUGE!!!"
I just liked the way the blooms looked laying on my diningroom table.

Back on July 1st, I posted several photographs of my daylily flowerbeds, here. In that post I mentioned a tall lily that I would post later, when it bloomed. This is it. These photos are a little overdue, since the lily has already finished blooming.

To get around my daylilies I had to cut the new shoots on the edges, they were not as tall, and I kept stepping on them. That is where I got the blooms laying on the table. I put them in water and gave them to a friend. She enjoyed them for close to a week. This is one of the sweetest smelling flowers in my yard.

What a beautiful lily! I count 7 flowers, how pretty. I'd love to have a patch of about 10 of these.

These are beautiful. I had seen these in several different yards and wandered what they were called. Now I know. They sure are tall.

That is a gorgeous lily. So glad you posted it. I bet it looks lovely with the daylilies.

Your grandsons are lucky to have such a talented grandmother. Don't they look cute and no, Noah does not look slighted at all with that big smile.
