Tender Lily Success? - Weigh in...
Just wondering what success others in zone 2-3 have had with tender lilies. I'm talking anything but Asiatics and Tiger types.
I bought a party pack of Orientals a couple of years ago and some disappeared but some have had marginal success. Last winter was bad and the Orientals I have left are very small, some are budding out but the plants are stunted. I'm not sure if this will improve in better years or if it's the beginning of the end...
Of Orientals, I have left
Willike Alberti (sp?)
maybe one or two others, I would have to check.
LAs do great for me, no problem there.
OTs 'Urandi' and 'Zagora' are still alive. 'Avocado' does great, it is the biggest, smelliest reliable lily in my garden.
Aurelian 'Bright Star' is one of my best lilies. It increases and blooms every year.
Just wondering if anyone else has one or two that do really well. It's been an expensive trial and error but at least I got to see many of them bloom the first year. :/
