Last night I found a seed pod on 'Caerulea' hiding on the bottom. The species lilies set seed on most flowers. If I don't cut them off there would be thousands of seedlings next Spring. The red color of the seeds indicates that they are not mature. Ripe seeds would be almost black.
'Evelyn Randig' has been a bit of a disappointment. The pads are beautiful and it blooms daily, but most of the blooms don't open fully. Today it made a really nice one. It's in the greenhouse this year. next year I'll try putting it outside where it will get more direct sun. Maybe that will help.

Evelyn Randig copes well with hot midday sun, an outdoors position will bloom it well.

With a blooming position buds in two's and three's are usual so it could be said to be free flowering in a favourable position.

The markings on the pads are as good as it gets, what a gem! It tubers like clockwork!
