Please don’t expect your regal lily
to look like this! They usually carry just 5-10 flowers per stem. But this bulb developed a fasciated stem, probably due to some mechanical or weather-related damage to the growing tip in the spring. It’s a one-year-only thing, but wow!
Thanks to our good customer Carol Cate of Shady Grove Gardens in Rochelle, Virgina, for sharing this incredible photo with us.
