These late flowering Christmas Lillies are in full bloom at the moment in my garden at Paihia, Bay of Islands, New Zealand.
Just a few years ago we witnessed a strange happening – an elderly lady who had a house further down the road from us was very proud of her little garden and kept it beautifully. She passed away in the middle of June ( our winter ) and the day after she died her lillies were in flower – this was way out of season, at least six months – something we will always remember.
