Planting in the Garden:

  • Success with bulbs depends on good soil preparation. Select a site in full sun to light shade with good drainage where water does not stand on the surface after a rain event. Lilies thrive in well-drained, moist soils. Avoid siting lilies where they will be exposed to extreme heat.
  • Dig the soil to the depth of a spade blade (about 10 inches). Work in organic matter to improve drainage, and at the same time improve the ability of the soil to retain moisture. A moderate amount of a balanced fertilizer such as Bulb-tone may be incorporated into the soil at this time.
  • Plant so the top of the bulb is 2 inches below the soil line. Space bulbs 6-16 inches apart, depending on the variety. Plant the flat part of the bulb down and the pointed part up.
  • Thoroughly water and apply a light mulch layer on top of the soil (1-2 inches) to conserve water and reduce weeds.
  • Keep weeds under control during the growing season. Weeds compete with plants for water, space and nutrients, so control them by either cultivating often or use a mulch to prevent their germination. 
  • Mulches also help retain soil moisture and maintain even soil temperatures. For perennials, an organic mulch of aged bark or shredded leaves lends a natural look to the bed and will improve the soil as it breaks down in time. 
  • Water thoroughly at least once a week to help new roots grow down deeply. Soil should be damp at about 1 inch below the soil surface. You can check this by sticking your finger in the soil. Water early in the morning to give all leaves enough time to dry.  One inch of rain or watering per week is recommended for most perennial plants. You can check to see if you need to add water by using a rain gauge.
  • Some taller lilies may require staking to prevent them from falling over in the wind. 
  • Deadhead after blooming.
  • Cut back stems to the base after the first frost in fall.
  • Divide in fall when plants become overcrowded.
  • In colder regions, apply another layer of mulch (1-2 inches) after the ground freezes in fall. Evergreen boughs (from Christmas trees) provide additional protection. Remove this mulch in the spring.
  • Lilies may be cut for cut flowers when the buds are colored and swollen but not yet open. When cutting for cut flowers, never remove more than one third of the plant.
  • Be sure to site fragrant lilies when you will enjoy the fragrance often, such as below a window or along a walkway.

Lily, Oriental Soft Music is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Slow bloomer, worth the wait This lily bloomed much later than the others. It seems to bloom a little more each day, rather than most lilies that just pop open in one morning. It's grown very straight and strong, not leaning under its own weight. Wonderful flowers that smell beautiful. Hope to see more show up next year!
