These are my lillys.100 days of blooms...so the bag claims.They are going on their 3rd year.The tire is 16 inches tall.I'd like to grow something else in with them so will have something in-between blooms,but don't want something that will take over either.
Also.whens a good time to divide some of the lillys.I try to set the bulbils in another spot,but some of these set seed
....I've not done well getting those& then I added some formosa seeds
this year to the tire.
Those are whats bloomed so far(missing closeup of the white in april)besides the ones scattered throughout the yard(lollypop/stargazer/triupher/easter lillys ect) I've also thought of finding another tire and starting another lilly tire bed.i'd thought of white cleome,but mines not very tall& looking at them right now....I'd not see the bloom over the tire.addy(neighbor) thinks BES would look nice,though I'm thinking would fill the tire in 3-4 years.The spot gets afternoon sun.morning shade till about10ish,but gets a bit of filtered shade after 4.the soil there is clay with some compost mixed in but still hard soil.draineage is fine...it runs downhill(maybe why the seedlings
seem to grow on one side of tire...the downhill side.)I've tried looking at others lilly beds and see what they grow.It's not helped me much,but has made me want a long bed of them.
