The midsummer mix of pink, white and red 6" blooms are fragrant in daytime—and more so at night. Lilies add form, structure and texture to the border. The 36-48" plants multiply over time, creating a fragrant mass of glossy leaves, sweeping plant habit and undiluted color.
Set out bulbs after last frost, in full sun to light shade. Plant 2" deep, spaced 6-15" apart,
depending on variety. Most lilies thrive in well-drained, moist soils. Mulch soil and water
well during the growing season, tapering towards winter. Stake tall varieties and deadhead to
keep plants neat. Cut back stems to the base after first frost. Avoid siting where plants are
exposed to extreme heat.
Harvesting Lily (bulb)
