Oxblood Lilies, Day Two...
two flowers have opened on each of the oxblood lilies (rhodophiala bifida) (click the picture for a larger image). and each scape appears to have at least
five six buds, rather than the four each i could see yesterday.
i thought my five inch tall lilies were awfully small (height-wise, not bloom size), so last night i searched the web looking for info. as it turns out, r. bifida is considered a miniature, only growing to about 12 inches tall.
more interesting info i found:
- rhodophiala bifida on the stephen f. austin arboretum site
- rhodophiala bifida profile on zanthan gardens' site
- comments on rhodophiala species (including r. bifida) in the march 2003 message archives (many other interesting threads, too) of the pacific bulb society
- the rhodophiala page on the pacific bulb society's site (summarizes comments from the message board, with photos)
a different photo of the lilies is now in the garden gallery.
