this one is a brown red seedling that recently started blooming. and while the red brown color is not the most stand out color the other qualities of the plant are attractive. it has increased well in the number of fans. it has nice sturdy scapes to hold the flowers up. it has good height. and the flowers are a good size and open nice and flat to show off the flower. to put it briefly this plant has lots of potential. one or two crosses with the right flower and it could go from so so meh to a real eye catcher that will really grab the late season garden. despite my earlier plans it looks like there will be some seed pods maturing in mid october…

      It is a reddish brown. Not particularly attractive. As for how you might get around your screen I don’t know how. Perhaps a friends cell phone or a PC at the public library ?

        I was referring to the way the photo looks on my setting. probably too specific about color, photo editing settings vary, as you know. I’ve been what they call computer literate since 1983, when I got my first outfit. 🙂 Color recognition is subjective, and usually it is the green shades that show photo editing.

        what I should have said is: the color in this particular photo appears to be violet/purplish color. Then too, one person’s description of color will differ. I do love seeing your Lily photos every day, John.

      No argument roberta. Some flowers can be seen from across the garden. Others capture your attention when one is up close and they display their detailed color combinations like this one. My choice of words could have been better. After all this is the third selection process this flower has passed. I just happen to be evaluating them on lots of different levels. I am glad you enjoy it. And believe it or not despite my previous choice of words so do I. I am glad you enjoy it. And that would make two positive comments to correct the meh. Thanks roberta !

      I was walking the yard with my keep or make room list and consulting with She Who Must Be Obeyed AKA Susan. Initially it was on the make room side of the ledger. Then I gave it a closer look as noted above. On top of which the brown or muted red plants while visually not the most stand out color in the garden still do deserve their place in the garden. And they are very capable of producing some amazing child plants in all sorts of shades and mixes. That red is a sibling to some of seedlings in this post and the featured seedling at the end. Thanks Deborah for seconding the decision to have this one on the keep side of the ledger.
