Black Gold Lily

Description
EXCLUSIVE! These beautifully colored lilies are almost black in the middle with a yellow-tipped edge. Perfect for cut flowers but also a good choice for naturalizing areas and cottage gardens. Prefers well-drained soil but will tolerate heavier soil; mulch is beneficial to keep soil moist and cool. Plant 4-6" deep; lily bulbs develop roots along the stem just above the bulb. Leave bulbs in the ground for increased beauty in following years.

These grew well, and each of the three bulbs has produced 3-4 flowers. Unfortunately, they were nothing like the description or picture. As others have said: wish I'd read the reviews. Mine have bloomed a greenish yellow w/ burgundy speckles in the center. I'm really disappointed and have asked for a refund.

I ordered 3 bulbs, they all bloomed with 3 flowers each. They are sturdy and pretty but not at all what the picture shows. Mine are a yellow flower with maroon specks in them. I, unlike others, didn't read the reviews first. Not sure I would have ordered them knowing why they look like. Picture should be updated to show customers what they're really spending their money on.

I, along with others, should have read the reviews first. I ordered the bulbs based on the pictures shown. What comes up is nothing close to the photos displayed. Extremely disappointed - they are a pale yellow with maroon center. I do not think they look that great

Had to wait 2 years to be disappointed as the deer ate all the flower buds off the first year. As other have stated mostly a peach color with dark flecks near the center. Be wary when ordering this product.

Hardy plants, I bought 3 bulbs. They just bloomed and are mostly yellow with maroon flecks in the middle. Each plant has 3 blooms on them, all the same colors. Disappointed that they aren't like the picture. If I had bought these for the colors that they turned out to be I would be really pleased. Beautiful flowers, hardy plants. But the picture in your catalog misrepresents the actual blooms we are getting.

I have several they all have produced dark black blooms with very distinct yellow triangles on the tips, not spotted or off color as others are experiencing.Each is producing 6 blooms. I live in North central GA outside ATL. the soil is pathetic red clay. These seem to be thriving and are in a location with only 4-6 hours of sun. I get heavy rainfall here ATL-avg is 49 inches /yr.

The lilies I received labeled "Black Gold" are mostly a pale peach with black flecks in the center. Not at all what the photo is showing! No yellow anywhere on the petals. You are misrepresenting your products, as was pointed out by another reviewer. They're still pretty but I can't help but be disapointed because I didn't get what I expected at all.

I should have read the reviews before purchasing. Like the other two reviews, I bought the flower because of the picture, and while they grew fast and each has 4-6 flowers on it, the flowers are mostly creamish yellow with specks of dark purple. Not disappointed with the flower, just not what I wanted.

I bought these lilies in 2015. They came up and one flowered that year. This year (2016) I have 4 little plants 2 of which are flowering. Mine are about 1/3 yellow and the black is more of a dark reddish, brownish black. Still a flower that you will not see anywhere else and I love it!

Lots of big blooms, was very hardy. However, they were mostly yellow with dark maroon flecks in the center and a bit at the tips of the petals. While they're beautiful they're not what is pictured. I suggest updating the picture for this item.

I bought 3 bulbs to see how they'd look. The 1st plant has 6 flowers coming out. The other 2 are still a little too small for the flowers to come out. The color is unbelievable. The best one I've seen. In the spring I intend to get at least a dozen more bulbs. I have a big stone flower box I made in front of my house, and I intend to have that box full of these lilies. I've never seen anything like them before.
