Lily Bulb Description

Lily Bulb - L. henryi variants
Lilium Henryi can be quite variable in appearance. Shown are four flowers selected from the same seed cross of L. henryi x L. henryi, and coming all from the same pod.

Inset photo is of a new L. henryi x Oriental seedling. Considering that each “generation” when making hybrid crosses can be 4 to 5 years, to go from the flower colors and forms of L. henryi you see in the opening photo to this L. henryi hybrid selection can and usually does represent a human life span. When you see a new hybrid listed at $59.95 or more, consider the fact that the breeder could have 40 or more years of his/her life invested in that one lily alone. Broken down to $1.50 per year, for the breeder, that bulb is a real bargain.
