Lilies & Hostas


Everything is blooming like crazy this week, including the orange daylilies that are sprinkled behind our hosta border.  I love their vibrant color...


Tawny Lily (aka Tiger Lily)

UPDATE: Thanks to all the smarty pants readers for correcting me!  These are not Tiger Lilies.  However, they are Tawny Lilies.  :)


I wish I could bring a few stems inside...  just like Martha Stewart did with these Tiger Lillies (dinner party hosted at Martha Stewart's East Hampton estate):

(how pretty is this?  I love the combination of the orange blossoms & blue glass Ball jars)



We also have a few of these blooming in the backyard...

The previous homeowners planted them.  I believe they're Asiatic Lilies? 



Happy Monday!

This is going to sound really nit-picky, and I'm so sorry for that, but I don't think those are actually tiger lilies. Tiger Lilies have black spots on them and a different petal formation. Their blooms usually last a few days to weeks. Your lilies, I believe, are orange daylilies. I have tons of them growing on my farm.

I know, I know, I've become that commenter! Sorry for that. I would just feel bad if someone wanted "tiger lilies" for their yard and then ended up ordering something completely different.
