Philippa - i planted 3 lilys bulbs last year very dark maroon colour ( looks similar to black jewel you are looking at ) i total forget about them. By time i notice slugs had nibbled right at very bottom of the plant and ruined 2 of the plants  

But i mange to save them, put them in pot in greenhouse. now about 7 inch tall

I love lilium. I have few collections from asiatic,oriental and goliath lilies.I even propagated them .At first, i will write their name in each pot but they always ended mixing up together.

Dayang...........join the club............no matter your good intentions.......labels get lost, written over or just plain don't go in the right pots

Still, it's always nice to have a surprise when they flower

Hi just reporting back about my maroon lilys what are starting to flower . They not as dark as black jewel 

But after a investigation today,  my other lilys muscat - stargazer - tree lilys haven't fared so well.  My muscat & stargazer were starting to rot, and the slugs have got my tree lilys .  I have potted them up in the Greenhouse and hoping for the best
