Hi All–
I’m a member of ADS and Texas DS; I have the heirloom tazetta ‘Constantinople’ blooming right now and noticed that it has no picture here in DaffSeek:
This one is definitely blooming early (even for the deep south)–I can only assume hurricane Ike’s rainfall might have got it growing earlier than normal. I obtained it as ‘Double Roman’ but they are the same–double form of Chinese Sacred Lily or Lady (I forget if its Lily or Lady–but I think its Lily).
While I have pictures that are definitely not “National Geographic” quality–I do at least have some pictures. I’m sure it will be blooming better in the near future. Is there a specific location where I can send the pictures and let “better judgements than mine” make a decision about whether or not they are acceptable? Also size constraints would be helpful–I tend to take large pics but can get out there tomorrow and take smaller pictures.
Thanks in advance!
(Houston, Texas)

    Hi Debbie ! . . PLEASE send your photos to daffnet just as you’ve sent your question below. It’s a wonderful part of daffnet that we all love very much. Try to keep them below 100K in size so that daffnet will distribute them easily.

    If you see the photos of Chinese sacred Lily there is a single form and a double one, I thought the double is Constantinople
