Belamcanda chinensis (leopard lily) summer (Belamcanda chinensis)

Excuse the weeds, grew this from seed three years ago, none of the plants were spotty which I thought leopard lilies were, collected some seed and have grown a few more this year should flower next, will be interesting to see what they are like, especially like this one though.

Thanks Leigh :-), don't put yourself down, we're all still learning, when I was your age I wouldn't have had a clue about gardening, remember buying a plant and looking after it only to find out when it flowered I'd nurtured a weed the actual plant in the pot had died,lol,sure you'll do fine with your flower growing anything your not sure of just ask on here, everyones always happy to help :-)
My lilies are already being eaten alive by flippin lily beatles, horrible bright red little b****rs, 2 were even mating!!!!!, not for long,lol, sorry but I had to squish them, the only good thing is the daylilies aren't affected by lily beetle, thank god.
If theres anything in particular you like just ask,( I'm a bit of an obsessive seed collector),lol, and if it sets seed I'll save some for you in the autumn ;-), lots of my plants I've grown from seed myself so can give you sowing advice :-)
