something for my lilies to play with?
This is only my second year to plant stargazers/lilies. Last year I had some trouble finding a companion plant with them. I'm not looking for something to "cover them as they fade". I'm looking for something to cut the leggy appearance of the lily. Something like 1/2-1/3 the height. I put in Alyssem last year and they shriveled up and died. I thought maybe I got some bad ones or something so I replaced them. The same thing happened!! It was almost like they were being poisoned..? No sign of pests or anything similar and the lighting was sufficient. The lilies were perfectly healthy and happy! Do lilies not play well with all plants?
PS-I hate pansies, gerandiums, and petunias.
