AREA COMMUNITY NEWS: Andermanns invite visitors to free lily tour Saturday

LOCKRIDGE — Jon and Lori Andermann will host a free lily tour from 8-11 a.m. Saturday at their rural Lockridge home.

Lori Andermann said that it is worth the drive to see the over 300 variety of day lilies, including Asiatic lilies, Turk’s cap lilies, trumpet lilies, and lily trees. She said most of her oriental lilies drowned this spring.

Andermann said anyone who would like to tour the lilies who can’t come on Saturday morning is welcome to call her at 319-696-2565 to set up an appointment.

The address is 1015 250th St., Lockridge, but Andermann cautioned visitors to not take the Henry-Jefferson road that GPS will send them on because the road is closed.
