They Are Not True LiliesMonday, June 07, 2010
I am growing Canna Lily for the first time. The flowers are attractive. I just love the flowers' vivid colours but they really look like fake flowers that are made out of crepe paper. And, grasshoppers love the leaves. The new leaves are always 'disfigured' by them! My way of punishing those little creatures... they go right into the throat of my Sarrracenia pitchers once caught ;-)
This is my second attempt to grow a Calla Lily. The first one rotted and is gone. I hope this one will last longer and the heat will not 'melt' the plant.
True lilies or not, their blooms are really gorgeous. Wish me luck ok!
