Resurrection Lilies 2006

I love my resurrection lilies. We got three bunches this year. This is two bunches together. We would have had another bunch but I accidentally mowed it down with the lawn mower while it was still real short. We have only had these at this house for two seasons after moving them from our East Nashville house.

If you don’t know how they grow then I’ll tell you. They come up in the early, early spring as a clump of long green leaves, much like iris leaves, but they die down in a few weeks and you forget where they were. Then around July the flowers shoot up on long stems and you remember about them. Another name is surprise lilies because after dying back they surprise you when they shoot up.
