Putrajaya Floria 2010 Part 5 - Lovely Lilies

“Putrajaya Floria 2010 Part 5 - Lovely Lilies”, a copyrighted post, was written for My Nice Garden blog by Autumn Belle @ on July 17th

Thanks to Floridagirl of Peace in The Valley blog who helped me identiy this flower correctly, I have updated my post. I initially thought it was daylilies, but it is in fact Liliums, the true lilies that are native to the Northern Hemisphere.
Scientific name: Lilium
Common name: Oriental Lilies, Asiatic Lilies
Family: Liliaceae

2. Pink Stargazer Oriental Lily

3. White Stargazer Oriental Lily

This is my entry for Today's Flowers # 102, a meme which opens every Sunday, 2pm GMT. My grateful thanks to Today's Flowers team members; Luiz Santili Jr, Denise in Virginia, Laerte Pupo and Sandy Carlson. To participate and view other gorgeous flowers around the world, click here.


  1. I ave enjoyed this tour so much Autumn. The lilies are so pretty.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. These are gorgeous lilies, Autumn Belle. We call these Oriental or Asiatic lilies over here. They can be grown in more temperate climates, but we cannot grow them in our gardens here in Florida.

    Our daylilies are those of the Hemerocallis genus, and each flower lasts from around sunrise to around sunset.

  3. Beautiful lilies!I think they are called Asiatic lilies in America. I grew them some years ago, but the bulbs died after one flowering.

  4. Lona, Floridagirl, Aaron. Good Afternoon!

    These lilies are from the same bouquet decoration in the Indoor Floral Pavilion (last picture). There is no signage but it looks like those grown in temperate countries, just like what Floridagirl said. We can't grow them here in the lowlands of Malaysia. I have only seen the yellow and orange ones in Genting Highlands, not these colours. They really smell like the English Lily-Of-The-Valley perfumes. They look like those imported and sold at the local florists.

  5. Hi, Lotusleaf, I think you are right too. I just missed you by a few minutes!

  6. These lilies are really beautiful Autumnbelle! Their fragrance is heavenly.

  7. I like the lilies better than the orchids in your posts maybe because we dont always see these. We also import ours from the temperate countries. Just like when our former president Cory Aquino died, all the flowers adorning the casket during the funeral parade are yellow and white Stargazers, as those are her favorites. They are all from abroad.

  8. How gorgeous! Such lovely photos. Thanks for sharing.

  9. OMG... These Lilly's surely are out of the world. Great shots Autumn Belle. Enjoying a peep into the Floria frm here. Thx for sharing.

  10. Lilies are one of my favourite blooms :)

  11. Stephanie, Andrea, Denise, Radhika, Mei Teng. Thank you very much for the visit and nice comments.

    Lilies are the favourite flower of many people. It is not surprising that like Andrea says, lilies are specially selected to accompany one's final journey. However, they are just as popular for bridal bouguets.

  12. Lilies are elegant and beautiful. I love lilies, too bad we cant grow it at home. It makes a lovely wedding hand bouquet. Lovely photos.

  13. Lilies are my wife's favourite flowers, especially the white ones. Your blog reminded me of our courting days when I rode through KL in the heavy rain looking for white lilies but I only found tiger lilies. Do you know whether they can be planted in Malaysia?

  14. the lilies are so beautiful most esp the colorful one

  15. Kitchen Flavours and Ayie. I do agree that these lilies will make a perfect bridal bouquet and will definitely make the bride feel like a Princess.

    Ismail, Welcome to My Nice Garden! You have just told us an enchanting story of Prince Charming riding in the rain and getting all wet for his lovely Princess, how very romantic!

    We can't grow these lilies in Malaysia as our weather is too hot. However, we can grow spider lilies, asian crimum lilies, rain lilies, water lilies, hippy lilies and agapanthus lilies :)
