Oh no! Lilies can get a bit overpowering I have tree lilies and in their best year four plants gave me 93 flowers their scent was to heavy for comfort

comment

@alan1111 93??? Wow! You really have a knack of getting your plants to flower! It’s a proper heavy scent isn’t it. Lovely but I can’t begin to imagine what 93 smelled like 🤪

They do grow fast & I'm hoping mine won't dilly dally either, especially as far as flowering goes. You & me both Kerry well in my case, as far as my own ones go 😏

@ShelleySnyder I had no idea they had a smell, let alone a bad one 😜😂😂 thank you for the warning, I’ll be moving them away from the path tomorrow 🤣

@cyndi they fascinate me! Don’t look real 😂 can’t wait for them to open, although I’ll be holding my nose when photographing them now I know they stink 🤣
