Welcome to a picture gallery of lily varieties for your viewing enjoyment. Lilies come in such a large variety that I didn't have any problem filling this page. Creating this page has been fun and interesting. This is thanks to changes in categories, family names and classifications of the Lily.
Is it any wonder that lilies are a favorite flower of so many? Once planted they will bring years of enjoyment and beauty to your yard. And the different kinds and shapes are too numerous to mention here.
For now just enjoy these images free to download for your personal use. You may even use them on your own website. All I ask is that you link back to Creations by Sally. If you have questions, be sure and contact me.
But first take a moment and enjoy some of these lovely flower pictures. Even if they are not "true lilies" they almost all have the term lily in their name.
Each thumbnail you see here opens into a gallery right on this page. Use the "Next" and "Previous" buttons near the top of each picture to see the next image in line.
To exit the gallery choose the close option in the bottom right corner. You can also click anywhere outside the image to close this window.
When you enjoy walking in a variety of directions in your own neighborhood and parks you are sure to come across a huge variety of lilies growing there. Summertime is the best time to enjoy these lovely flowers.
First in this row is a bright orange field lily cluster. I'm sure you've seen them growing all around fields and roadsides all across the US. Maybe even in Europe. Most of our flowers do migrate from there.
Next is another wild lily I captured on my camera at my favorite stomping ground. You guessed it! The Riverwalk in Naperville, IL. This pale yellow and rust colored lily was growing all alone on the park wall.
And last in the row is a cultivated stargazer lily. You can buy these by mail or at your local plant shop. I believe this one is a picture of some of the lilies my daughter, in WV, for her flower beds.
One of the reasons I called this page lily varieties is because of the wide selection of flowers that used to be and some that still are considered members of the lily family. One name for this first flower on the left is Checkered Lily. They actually look like tiny upside down tulips.
And speaking of tiny, everyone knows this middle flower as Lily of the Valley.
While we're speaking of lilies that are different. The last flower in this row is called a surprise lily. It gets its name from the fact that it has no lower leaves except those that lay calmly on the ground. Then one morning you walk out into your garden and there they are, a beautiful pink cluster of lilies.
Daylilies are most interesting of the lily varieties. Every evening the blooms of the day drop from their stems. And you are greeted by new flowers the next morning.
And this is how they got their name I would imagine. They do come in a variety of colors as you can see from these sample pictures.
