B&D Lilies has been a family owned and operated farm in Northwest Washington State, specializing in garden-tested Oriental, Trumpet, and Asiatic bulbs, selected for soil and weather conditions across the country, for more than 30 years. Our children, plus a host of neighbors, have planted, weeded, harvested, packed and shipped lily bulbs all across North America since 1978. All of our bulbs are grown here in the Pacific Northwest, where hybridizing of the modern garden lily began. Hybridizers such as LeVern Friemann, Leslie Woodriff, and Jan de Graaff pioneered the breakthrough in easy to grow hybrids many years ago.
As lilies gained in popularity, the cut flower marketers began to select bulbs that did well in greenhouses, were of uniform stem size, and packed easily in cut flower boxes; fulfilling consumer's desires for lilies in floral arrangements. As home gardeners discovered the modern lily bulb was easy to grow, many of these cut flower types also made their way into commerce; some were very good, but others simply marginal when exposed to the rigors of the varying American landscape. Sadly, there is little valid information in the garden center, home building store or the mass marketing, "offer it all" catalogs to help people choose the correct lily for their personal location.
B&D Lilies takes the guesswork out of choosing bulbs for the home garden. We have been testing (and discarding) hundreds of potential new cultivars over the last quarter century. Some "flash in the pan" hybrids look promising, then begin to decline in stamina after a few years, while other seedlings may not show their stuff at first, but produce a stunning, reliable show, year after year. Those are the bulbs you want; the ones that provide an investment for your time and money; bulbs from B&D Lilies.
