By SKEETER Let's go to the beach shall we? Not the beach with water but rather the Beach Themed Planter in my Georgia Garden. I was worried about the Palm in the planter after the abnormal Ice Storm we had this past January. The tag stated that this European Fan Palm is hardy to temps of Zero after established. I had planted this palm less then a year before this winter storm. So you can imagine my worry.
As you can see, she make it just fine.
As did the Formosa Lily to the right of the palm. This Lily was a surprise lily that showed up as a bulb in a package of Canna that dear Lola sent me. Click HERE if you would like to go back and see the post about those Canna.
This makes the third year for this lily and I think it is safe to say, She is happy in my Beach Planter. Look how tall she is compared to my 5 foot 7 inch self.
She is full of blooms and they smell so sweet!
She is a late blooming Lily blooming in July or August. Sometimes referred to as the August Lily. This bloom must have just open as it has not been touched.
This one HAS been touched as you can see the pollen all over the bloom. The bee's and butterfly's have been busy. Thank you so much Miss Lola for the gift that keeps giving of this beautiful FORMOSA LILY, In the Garden...
