I thought this was an Aurelian Hybrid, but apparently it's another Orient-pet, 'Mr Cas'

Yet another "new" Orient-pet Lilium this year is 'Robina'

I'm hoping that these new Orient-Pets do as well as the ones we established earlier like 'Silk Road' which now puts up tall stems with many flowers,

One of the groups I belong to is the Ferny Creek Horticultural Society which meet in The Dandenongs, East of Melbourne. It's over 2 hours drive from home but well worth it, especially as they have 4 Flower Shows a year and this weekend was the Summer Show, featuring Liliums, Vireya Rhododendrons and Hydrangeas.

I'll post a few pics of the Liliums here, unless the Moderators think I should start a new thread?

Here's the main bench with the "Best in Show" - a stem of a stupendous Oriental-Trumpet (O-T) Lilium 'Belladonna' shown by Adrian Van Kampen who has a small business "Club Creek Bulb Farm" which is where most of my new liliums were sourced!

cheers

You have got a very nice collection, Fermi! Some admirable ones at that show too. No problem with the red beetle?

As Far as I know the red lily beetle hasn't been found here - yet! A frightening prospect if it ever did,

The Red Lily Beetle wasn't here when I was a youngster, but it definitely is in the area now- probably why I haven't added any lilies to the garden yet. Last summer I noticed my neighbour's Cardiocrinum giganteum was under attack by these pests. At least she was able to see the plant bloom. Hopefully the young offsets will take less time to maturity!
