Plant of the Week- Surprise Lilies
So I'm starting a new feature called Plant of the Week. I think it's a good way to learn more about a particular type of plant. I'm hoping to get some feedback on what type of plant you'd like to see featured. This week, we're going to start with a plant that I didn't even remember purchasing, but bloomed last year. They have some really interesting habits.

This is a picure of a bunch of surprise lilies. See how there's no foliage surrounding the stalk? Many people soften the edges with annuals or ground cover. I personally like the way they look.
