Seed-Grown Easter Lilies Replace Imported Bulbs
from Popular Mechanics (1921)
As a result of successful experiments conducted at the government farm in Virginia, the Easter Lily has now become a wholly domestic plant, grown from seeds instead of from imported bulbs. Furthermore, the home-grown lilies, reaching full flower 15 months after planting, carry five to 15 blossoms to a stalk, as compared with four to five for the average bulb-grown plants. It is reported that good seed may be procured by anyone by pollinating the flowers as now obtained.
The importation of lily bulbs is large, some 10,000,000 valued at about $2,000,000 being brought from Japan last year. The experiments have proved that the Easter lily is really a very hardy plant, wintering well in the average temperate climate with the bulbs only 4 inches under ground.
What quote would be most effective in supporting the point that Americans spend a lot of money on imported lily bulbs?
