whats happened to my lily?

occasionally second year lilies merge their stems into a single and produce a martian lily- happened once to me-if i remember correctly flowering was very poor-its a natural unnatural thing

Growing Roses

Posted: 09/06/2014 at 17:42

35C here today so lake tahoe beach today-when i was going to pull the rose i cut the main stems by half but then had 2nd thoughts. in late winter took them off completely. you might cut yours back and rub off any new growth on the old canes and then finish the job in march. the year after i did it the bloom on the remaining canes was incredible. looking at the lists of roses people have grown in the past made me think of ellen willmot, extremely rich edwardian lady who supposedly grew every rose then in cultivation. could it be done now or are there just too many?
