Lilies


Photo by Gardens By Design

Lilies have been around forever and there is a good reason. They are superb plants, faithful, produce for many years, multiply with good manners and offer a myriad of colors, sizes and forms. We offer mainly two types, Asiatic Hybrids and L.A. Hybrids, a cross between Longiflorum and Asiatic.

Lilies are bulbs that need to be planted no less than 6 inches deep, in well drained soils, and in a place where they won’t be disturbed for years. Compost, bulb food or bone meal can be added to the soil when planting and a top coating of compost or composted steer manure can be added every spring but not absolutely necessary. Or you can push a couple of sticks of chalk in beside the bulbs each spring for a ‘timed release’ feed. If you are bothered by varmints, a few pieces of sharp gravel in the hole will deter voles. This is one plant that I do cut back in the fall after the foliage turns brown to feed the bulbs.

Pollen stains on your clothing when handling lilies can be a problem. Do not brush the pollen away with your hands. The oil in your hands will set the stains. Let the pollen dry then brush it away with a dry soft brush or gently dab the stain with adhesive tape. Exposure to sunlight may fade the stain or commercial fabric stain remover is a last resort. There are new lilies without pollen. They have stamens but no pollen.

Lilium 'Fangio' (L.A. Hybrid Lily)

Plum-colored petals and darker stamens grab your eye wherever they bloom in your gardens. So many other perennials are complimented by this great lily. Dicentra eximia 'Luxuriant' blooms all summer and although the foliage and flowers are opposite the lily, they make a great combination. (Photos courtesy of Dr. Annie Nevaldine.)

Grow on dry side to avoid bulb rot. Push a couple of sticks of chalk in beside the bulbs each spring for a "timed-release" feed. Removing the orange center pistils will add bloom time.
