Lilies Make Everybody Smile...
Pete has lots of practice in growing lilies for gardens and for cut flowers, and plant breeders have been creating and improving varieties for decades.  We have potted lilies for your garden, and cut lilies to grace your table.  Asiatic hybrids don't have a scent, but they are visually stunning.  Find them close to the front door of the market.
