Speaking of lilies, aside from the big Hoffrica varieties we grow, we grew some bouquet sized stems from smaller, less expensive bulbs. Asiatic lily bulbs are pretty inexpensive to begin with, but we called up Ron Beck at Gloeckner ( 503-655-0908) and asked him to recommend something that we could experiment with. We wanted a lily that would have a good bud count with a smaller bulb, be tall enough to grow outdoors, and be around 20 cents a bulb. He sent us a list of varieties in the 10/12 cm size. We choose one called Elite. This variety was perfect for bouquets.
