           "Lilies : The Perfect Touch"
           June 26 and 27, 2010                 Des Moines, Iowa

The beautiful Des Moines Botanical Center showcased our 37th Annual Lily Show . IRLS
members cut tall lily stems from their own garden and prepared them for the show.
Rows and rows of fragrant lilies lined up on tables to greet visitors. Competition was
tough, but the best stems won. We also had a long line of floral designs featuring Lilies!

Yelloween  and Royal Sunset lead off this table of hardy LA

are easy to grow in full sun or part shade. They hold up well
to rain & wind with strong stems. A MUST for any garden!
