When I first saw these bulbs, it was near Schulenberg, Texas, an old German community along Interstate 10 in Texas known for its many beautifully painted churches. That was in January, and for many years I saw them blooming in January. Their golden cups usually catch my eye first, but if they are hidden with some other winter growing plants in a garden that I might be visiting, I can sometimes smell them first.

This last Thanksgiving, our Chinese sacred lilies began blooming in the back corner of our field. What a welcome delight for a Thanksgiving dinner table! They had none of the strong fragrance that sometimes deters seasonal flowers from being brought in for a dinner table. Nothing but praise and celebration for the blooms was heard, and I've done this bulb thing long enough to the point that people are beyond the point of nice words and to the point of honesty with me. Why would they bloom early that year? I believe the weather patterns forced them to bloom. For more on forcing, please see our two paperwhite selections for this year.
