Love & The Oriental Lily

Okay, guys, listen up.

Valentine's Day is just around the corner.

And you are more than likely expected to shell out some dough for flowers.

1) You want to.

2) You have to.

If you don't she'll change the locks!

Before you fire up the credit card for another predictable bouquet of red roses, think about being wildly unpredictable and creative this year.

In the completely unscientific poll that I conducted with 3 of my friends last night, Lilies were the hands down favorite over Roses.

Probably because they have an irrestible fragrance.

And flowering personalities to suit every single woman you're dating. (With any luck, they'll never meet each other.)
From delicate pink to luscious peach or brilliant Fuschia Stargazers, you'll earn major bonus points if you wow her with these.

No need to thank me.

Asiatic, Oriental and Trumpet Lilies are all USDA zones 3 or 4 easy growing perennials. If you receive them as a potted plant, you can transplant them into the garden for years and years of spectacular blooms. Planting multiple varieties assures a full summer of breathtaking flowers.
