Look what I discovered this morning! I thought they were finished, but as it turns out, there was one last flower; however, due to the Japanese Beetle, no leaves were present, just one lonely skinny stem. @gjones

I thought I had removed all the stems, but apparently not. @gjones. I believe you had sent me this one as well.😊

So pretty!💛😍 Japanese beetles are the worst! Most of the flowers ive grown this year have been destroyed by them!

Thank you @petitelake. I love the self-seeding larkspur, they add so much to the garden.

@littlemorningglory Yes, they sure have been a problem. Have you had any success with Neem oil?

@kaigia I've not tried it! I always keep a neem oil mixture around (in case of a spider mite attack) but I haven't thought about using it for the beetles. Ill have to try it☺

The orange ones bloom first, the the light pinks, then the dark pinks and finally the yellow ones make their appearance.

Nice variety of colours. Yours are a bit ahead of ours! Our orange and red are blooming now and we noticed one white one has opened but our pink and yellow ones won't be blooming for a couple of weeks yet!

How nice! Did you get them separately and mix them?

@gjones @MelanieAt Thanks! I love this little corner of my house. Fortunately, the Japanese beetles didn't get to them this year. I got the different colours separately and just kept on adding. This corner is so small that I am unable to add other plants to it to replace the lillies once they finish blooming for the year and then, it's just a sad-looking area.

So what I do with lilies is lasagna planting with other bulbs. I layer them to have interest throughout spring, summer and I have perennials around them to keep going well into fall.

@MelanieAt. Great idea. I will do some planning with dividing some of these and moving in other flowers.

@blasome thanks! The orange is the most exciting because they are the first to appear.
