Burnished orange Asiatic hybrid lilies (Lilium ‘Make-up’) and the polished mahogany bark of Prunus serrula make a dramatic statement in Margaret de Haas van Dorsser’s Portland, Oregon, garden. This striking combination is punctuated by the peach spikes of foxtail lilies (Eremurus x isabellinus Ruiter Hybrids).
