Lilies - Anaconda, Angelique, Stargazer, Garden Party - Late Bloomers

Later summer blooming lilies continue to give color to the Brueckner Rhododendron Gardens lily garden. Anaconda has just finished blooming, Garden Party adds yellow, and Angelique is making a valiant attempt to hold off the Japanese beetles. Let's lead off with the stunning white Stargazer lily.

Oriental Lily Angelique

This collection of Angelique shows some of the insect damage in yellow leaves. This summer in Ontario has been a difficult growing season for most plants, and insects are having a field day.

Lime-yellow lily with Burgundy Freckles

As yet, I have no name for this lily. If you know its name, please leave a comment. Only a few were blooming, but they are very striking.

Anaconda Trumpet Lily

A graceful beauty, Anaconda Trumpet Lily is tall -- 3 feet and taller -- with a lovely pink blush on the outside of the petals.
