Lily bulb color?
Hi I recently purchased Oriental lilies, Cultivar: Lavon and when I received them, the bulbs were purple and firm, meaning they felt healthy. What I am concerned about is should the bulbs be purple, or should they be white like normal bulbs?

Thank you for your question. The color of the bulb has no relationship to the color of the flower. Here is an article about this species: https://www.ndsu.edu/pubweb/chiwonlee/plsc211/student%20papers/articles05/sletto,%20amanda/asletto/asletto.htm Good luck!
