Florida

I'm looking for an inexpensive way to add some landscape plants that won't grow crazy out of control - or go dormant/die.

Lily bulbs seemed like a good place to start but I have no clue how they do in FL - (probably great since this state is a swampy jungle) - but just checking.

Any recommendation on one's that have the most color most often would be great - and not exceed 4 feet high - and not spread like a virus all over.

If I can grow them with bulbs - is that the most cost effective way? And of course the follow up question to that - cheapest place to get such bulbs? :-)

When I lived in zone 10 I had 'Enchantment', an orange Asiatic type.

Lilies do die back every year.

If you have a CostCo they will be an excellent price. I have also purchased at big box stores. Smaller bulbs but they were true to name.

Try the LA hybrids- they do extremely well for me in Louisiana. They have the nicest most robust foliage, never a spot or insect mark.
