Do you sell those lilies, too? I might be interested in this one. Reminds me something from childhood.

This plant is only 1 year old and hasn't grown to the size where it can be divided. Also, it acts as an evergreen in my garden, which can be a problem for those who have freezing temperatures - I have the opposite problem with the dormant types, it doesn't get cold enough for them.

These are not Lillium species, but Hemerocallis. A dormant daylily in colder areas with teeth won't produce teeth in a warmer area. My favorite seller of daylilies doesn't get his to rebloom, but in my garden, I have no problems. I actually have 12 seedlings of this cross, and this was the only one that was evergreen. The rest were semi-evergreen or dormant, and are still growing to blooming size. The evergreen type continue to grow during the winter, and the dormants loose their leaves.
