a suprise to see this batch of L. henryi babies blooming. The
first feat is that they made it through two winters in Saskatchewan.

This one has more of an overall green tinge. Click on the picture for a closer look.
Orange L. henryi hybrid
Marribelle x Cuppuccino 18-144 There are many
blooming. By far this particular one was my favourite. The
twisting and turning of the petals was unlike any other lily in my
gardens. Marribelle has always been a favourite in my breeding
program. In this cross Cuppuccino gives the tango pattern.
Marilyn Brown Salmon x Marribelle
This one imparts Marribelle's thickness of petal. MB Salmon was
from a plant exchange years ago,likely 'Selina'. It imparts a
great plant habit. I like the orange blush of this flower.
Red Strap x Sungod
I was on a real dark red kick for a while. This is one of
hundreds of seed created. This particular floret won a ribbon at
the 2010 South Saskatchewan Lily Society Show.
Red Strap x Sungod b
I liked the form and depth of colour on this one. We will see what the coming years bring to the overall plant habit.
86-144-1 and 2 Griesbach OT seed
I love the seed I've collected over the years through exchanges.
Bob Griesbach works extensively with tetraploid lilies. These
particular OT's have done well in our climate.
Baby Pink Bells Seedling
BPB's is a unique flower with small bell shaped blooms. Here it is has been crossed with an orange speckled lily.
