Gorgeous colour! Spritz will be lucky to get them back lol!

oh no she will get them back. they are not disimilar to ones I bought last year, as red carpet, some of which were all red and others were like these. I am hoping the 20 i planted come through the winter as they are in the soil.

20! That will make a glorious show SBG! Be sure to post a pic next year then, would love to see that.
My first and last foray was buying several pots of Enchantment which were promptly decimated by lilybeetle. That was before I realised they were not ladybirds! Havent planted any since until this year..when I planted 3 martagon lilies..must remember to get some Provado or whatever its called! After seeing all these lovely lilies on here I am giving them another go.

had very few lily beetles I think 4 in total. the red carpet lilies are spread out along the border so the overall effect isnt of a carpet really. just a splodge of colour here and there.

Aren't they a gorgeous colour! I looked for some like this for my hot border this summer, but with no success. I was so pleased when Sbg took me to her plantman and we found these. :-))

You've been lucky with only 4 red perils, Sbg. I've had a lot. Nasty things! Grrrr...
