Out with old and in with the new!

Phew! I feel like I just sorted out that old closet I've been meaning to clean for the last five years!
I've been busy cleaning up our Lily section and have gotten rid of almost all the old varieties on the site that growers just don't produce anymore. It was amazing to see how few Asiatic's are in production these days (down from 5 pages to one!) as most growers move to LA Hybrid varieties (well, they ARE better!). Also great fun to see the unique colors and forms available in the newer Oriental and O.T Lilies. I left a few of the old standard varieties on the site ( like Casablanca) even though not many growers produce it anymore but put a note and a substitute link to the pure white Orientals that have replaced the old Casa production.
I couldn't bring myself to remove the amazing double flowering varieties on the site even though I've yet to see any sizeable commercial production of these. I'm sure they're on their way and besides, they're just too cool to remove!
Hope this helps us all to be better informed and to sell more lilies!

Wow, I just saw the new Double Flowered Oriental Lilies Fabiola and Belonica which were added to the site by Ronin. Does anyone know where these are available ( I've not seen them on the markey anywhere?). ?????

Hello all. I was wondering if anyone is familiar with an LA Lily, that is a true deep burgundy/cranberry.The bloom is approx. 7" across, they are 2-3's stand about 80-90 cm. i recall that I began to purchase them (quite costly, but long lasting, and well worth it) about 5-6 yrs ago. They were/are grown in Ca. The Watsonville area. If anyone knows this variety, I would greatly appreciate the info. None of my suppliers have been able to get this lily. Thanks FDNY343
