One of the most common questions we hear is “what’s new” followed by “what’s your favorite”? Our “favorites” are the lilies we grow, if we do not like it, we simply do not grow it. It is usually the new introductions that are thought of first when asked about favorites, but the 50 year garden veterans rate just as high in our hearts. For example, ‘Gold Eagle’, that was introduced in 1957 by Leslie Woodriff, still rates as one of the finest Aurelian types ever developed. Though some of the new golden yellow Orienpets such as 'Bellville' are finding favor over ‘Gold Eagle’, in popularity, it is a variety that we will always have in our gardens and as such will continue to be a “favorite”.
Our lilies go through extensive trials not only on our own farm, but in a few select customers gardens as well. They are tested for fading in the hot eastern California sun, for winter tolerance in Wisconsin, and for hot, humid, Louisiana weather not to mention for fungus resistance here in our cold and damp Pacific Northwest.
Our Fall 2020 / Spring 2021 offerings bring to your garden our greatest offering ever, in 42 years of new selections. While new introductions usually sell out early, such as 'Cosmic Gumdrop' shown as our title photo, they will be back soon for those who missed out on their initial release.B&D Lilies
