Black Beauty Lily




I opened the front door this morning and to my delight the Black Beauty lily had opened!
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

This is the first time I've seen this type of lily. It is very unique and detailed. Just beautiful.

Beautiful example!! Hate to admit it but I managed to kill the one I had, benign neglect and shame on me!! Thanks for sharing!

I thought I had killed this one because we moved when I was 9 months pregnant and didn't get it into the ground. I planted what was left of the bulbs anyway. It took two years for it to come back but it is so pretty I'm glad it did!

VERY VERY pretty...so unusual...yes, those bulbs take their sweet time getting comfortable, before they decide to give us a show...well worth the wait!!!

Wow...what a beautiful flower, and your photos show such a stunning look of it..I want one too!

Are they hanging upside down?

The stamens face down and the petals recoil back(and up, I would say), it is a very funny lily to take a picture of! I've just taken more and will post those too so you can see how funny it truly is!
