Cupido-A delicate soft violet-pink flower resembling the butterfly for which it is named.
Golden Orb, often called Mariposa Lilies, will be a favorite in your spring garden. Big, bowl-shaped blooms are a brilliant canary yellow with a speckling of brown in the centers. It flowers in late spring/early summer on 12" to 14" stems. Plants die back and go dormant in summer, then pop back up the next spring. Excellent for cutting. They can also be potted and grown in an indoor sunroom.
A late spring, early summer blooming wildflower of immense charm. Stems grow from 12 to 18 inches tall and carry cupped flowers in shades of yellow, pink, lavender, and white. Flowers are long-lasting in the vase. Plant them in sunny rockeries or in mixed bulb beds.
Velvety petals in a kaleidoscope of colors form delightful cup-shaped blooms in early summer. Flowers are 2”-3” across, carried on graceful stems 12"-24" long. They’re stunning as cut flowers in arrangements and exceptionally long-lasting. Inside petals are brushed with color for a dramatic presentation. Plant in a sunny, well-drained spot in the perennial garden and watch the show!
Showy flowers of white or bright buttery yellow are painted with splashes of mahogany in the center of the exquisite cup-shaped blooms. Ideal cut flowers are carried on stems 16”-18” long, and last up to ten days in the vase. Also known as Mariposa lilies, they thrive in dry conditions and will put on a dazzling show from late spring through early summer.
We planted this variety for our spring garden 2017 here in San Antonio, Texas. A lot of our cantaloupes started out with a pronounced curve on the flower end and going for about 2 inches. The flesh was sweet but on the curved part there was no flesh to eat. What caused this? Mary W.
