Lilium formosanum This is an heirloom strain of the Formosa Lily with sturdy stems and summer flowers of pure white, unblemished by a darker throat. Close to the true species, it was described as a "reselected Wilson strain" in catalogs of the 1940s. Typical blooming height is 4-5'. If grown on richr soils can reach 7' and will need staking.





Lilium speciosum var. rubrum '4th of July'    We did not have the right to re-discover this treasured bulb decades after I had lost it at the nursery and yet…a surprise phone call from a nice lady that began with “I have this beautiful lily growing all over my side yard-we got from your dad in 1962…” Three foot stalks produce extraordinary flowers dependably each summer and the bulbs multiply even with sixty inches of rainfall a year. I won’ begin to attempt describing the flower. A Google  search for Rubrum Lily yields best description.
 


Liriope muscari ‘Lynn Lowrey’ (name is in question as some regard this as a strain of Ophiopogon jaburan.) We bestowed cultivar status to this giant liriope after watching it achieve 3’ in height in some of our plantings. Shared with us by Tom Dodd Jr. who received his from the late, great, Texas plantsman. We grow this in 3-gallon pots for use in groupings or even as specimen "shrubs".
