WHITE LILIES

Two kinds of lilies are blooming now in our garden.

The first one is 'ginger lily' (Hedychium).  It is not Liliaceae, but Zingiberaceae.
We planted it beyond a rose arch beside a bench.  It has exotic foliage and fragrant spikes of flowers.  It grows almost 180 cm (70 in) tall.


It has very sweet fragrance and we really love it.





Another lily is blooming here and there in our neighbourhood.  It is Lilium formosanum originally imported from Taiwan about a hundred years ago, and it grows wild now in Japan.
It is slender and looks pure.  It is a messenger of autumn.
