Lily Enthusiasts and Gardening Friends:
Welcome to our 2015 lily bulb catalogue. This year marks our 21st year!
A special thank you to our many loyal customers who have supported us
the last year. We hope you will enjoy the beauty of the lilies you now
have growing in your gardens.
An exciting new addition featured on our front cover from the breeding
work of Dr. Robert Griesbach is a new tetraploid aurelian aptly named
'White Amber' grown by Jeffries Nurseries, an improved 'White Henryi'
type. Also from his breeding work we were able to obtain two new
trumpets found on page 24.
In perusing our asiatic listing you will find many new additions
including two exceptional hybrids from the hybridizing work of Warren
Summers; 'Purple Life' and 'Trogon'. From The Lily Nook growing field we
are offering an asiatic cultivar introduced in 1975 by Dr. Wallace
Windus, 'Lime Ice'.
In Division II, we are introducing a new martagon from the late Ed
Robinson's work with lilies. We have named this one 'Grace' after Grace
Lindenberg, Ed's niece. As well we have re-listed two martagons that The
Lily Nook has named from Ed Robinsons hybridizing work.
We invite you to visit us at the Lily Nook to stroll though our show
gardens from July 1st to July 31st to view over 1500 named varieties in
various stages of bloom. Over 150 varieties of potted lilies are
available for sale at our Lily Gift Shoppe. We are located in beautiful
farm land, 4 km south of Neepawa MB, 80098 on highway #5.
Happy Gardening with Lilies!!
