It seems like ages ago when the tall Orienpet lilies stood 7 feet tall and towered above the other flowers. Perhaps their name "The Empress" was appropriate to their strength and stature, all the while in contradiction to their role as chief hummingbird perch for the ruby throats. The tiny birds stake these lilies out as they catch their breath before feeding again on the bright red monardas, known to many as bee balm.
