Default Rain lily (Zephyranthes)

I didn't think I had any of these anymore, but one popped up in the middle of ground orchid foliage. They're in the amaryllis family and they usually bloom after a very heavy rain. If you have them, you never know when they're going to just show up.

Default Freesia

The smallest package of freesia I could find this fall was one that contained 60 bulbs. I ended up planting a bunch in a grow bag and even put some in hanging baskets. They will bloom late winter through early spring.

Got my mixed daffodil bulbs planted today.

It is lillium time again here, those from last year are just starting to flower on much stronger plants and they have multiplied well. Even some of the first year plants are going to flower! Was not expecting that. Will photograph once weather settles down here

Default lilliums

A group shot to start with. The tall plants are the lilies shown in posts 9 and 10 of this thread, or thereabouts. Planted last year they have grown and multiplied well. The tall white that is the first to flower is the white with dark spots as per earlier posts, it has not multiplied but is a much stronger plant with 6 buds rather than just 2. Will probably multiply next year. The other back one is, I believe the yellow which has 3 or 4 new plants, some with 2 buds on them. In between them, and slightly forward is the orange with its dozen or so babies and the red off to the right front with one or two babies which are going to flower.

The glady that is in spike has 4 or 5 corms total instead of the one planted.

Off on the middle of the right hand edge of the photo is one of three Dark Charms planted last year, all have multiplied, with there being 3 plants in each clump.

More photos to follow, weather here has been crazy, winds up around 50 mph and short heavy showers, once weather settles, the camera will come out.

The pinks that are in Post 9 have not multiplied to any great extent, last years plants was a single bulb with two growths coming from it. Each growth put out a new bulb underground most likely and we have two plants up this year, one with 18 buds, the other 20.

Dark Charm is a lilium that is a very deep red, almost black. This is what it was like last year

i received some wisconsin red heirloom dahlias this summer at a local plant exchange.
that i grew in pots. i have a big pot that i brought into the house to thaw out from being frozen with the intention of pulling the tubers out of the pot for storage. it looks
like i waited too long. i have multiple shoots growing. now i don't know what to do.
if they continue to grow, they will get tall and spindly in doors. i would like not to kill them. they are a pretty flower.


what should i do?????
