Hello All;

Just wanted to know if anyone ever planted this type lilly.
if so what are the pro's and con's,or your experence growing
this plant. The ones I thinking about are in the Breck's
fall bulb catalog.

Thanks

They look good. A short version of lily in some nice colors.
The blooms will only last a couple weeks or so and then you have the dying stems to deal with. Like most bulbs they need to be left until they are fairly brown. They are feeding the bulb for next year's blooms. Not a bad choice you just need to keep this all in mind.

I try to plant my lilies among other plants that will help hide the bare foiliage after they bloom, or I plant them in pots so I can move the pot to my greenhouse after blooming. (You could also simply move the pots to a location out of the way.)

Hello. We planted these, and they are blooming now. They are very colorful and look great, if fact we will probably buy some more. They came from Brecks. Don't always like their products but these lilies are nice.

rebloom? has anyone tried this on lilies
