I have put these lilies under the heading of perennials as although Asiatic Lilies would normally be classed as bulbs - most people grow them as perennials :D

As there are many of us that just love lilies of all descriptions and as many have already said how much they liked

this bi-color Asiatic Lily named ' Olina ' which was featured in the thread ' Black Tulips ' but said they hadn't seen them before - thought that I would introduce you to some more of the these bi-color lilies from the Tango Lily and Tango Passion series - in good time - so that those of you who would like to enjoy their beauty this summer - can plant some - especially as there are so many varieties and colors to choose from like

these are just a few of the many bi-color varieties available - there many more and if you have a favorite please feel free to add it to the list.
You'll also be very pleased to know - that the bulbs for all the varieties shown above are available to buy online :)

All of these are so beautiful. I love the bi-colors. Having two colors just adds to the beauty of these already gorgeous flowers.
I have never planted any bi-color Asiatic lilies. Your post and lovely pictures have convinced me to give it a try. Thanks so much for sharing.

I really like them all, but my favorite one is the black and red one!!!! But they're all extremely beautiful, specially the last one. It would be an interesting addition to any garden. I might get a couple of bulbs in the future :LOL:

They're all so beautiful! My favorites are Nettys Pride and Latvia, I would plant them next to each other, I'm sure it would look great:)

And here are Asiatic Lilies named Lollipop - a cute name for a cute plant:D:

They are such stunning colors and your photography is exceptionally well done also. You have really captured their beauty in an understated manner.

Love seeing the lilies! Yummmm

GM, those are some I have never seen before. Do you find they self propagate?

Claudine, lollipops are the only lily I have ever had multiple for me. They have become my favorite.

firelily99 - sorry - but when replying to your post yesterday was in a bit of a hurry and didn't spot the fact that you thought that the photographs of the lilies were taken by me - when in fact they weren't - but are ones found on the internet - so hope now knowing that - it doesn't spoil your day :D


Claudine and Jewell - your pictures are truly gorgeous :) and yes some of the hybrid lilies do self propagate if grown in groups.

Jewell, the lilies in the picture that you posted are really pretty, I like their intense color, it looks so vivid!

This Lily is called "Cathedral Windows", I love its name, it sounds so nobly!:
