One of the new plants we are growing this year is the rare and spectacular Nepal Lily, Lilium nepalense. I recently had to leave the nursery for several days and was reluctant to go because the lilies were budding up and almost in bloom.
The Nepal Lily has large funnel shaped flowers that are lime green with a prominent burgundy center. The petals (technically tepals) are reflexed and form a charming curl when viewed from the side.
Each day I was away, I asked Truls for a status report. The answer was always the same: Not open yet. The first flower opened on the day I returned home. How cool was that!
