Do you stake your Tiger Lilies?

shelli563(zone 6 MA)June 25, 2009

Mine are about 4'-5' tall, seem sturdy (though some are growing at a slight angle). I'm worried that with any serious wind or storm, they could break before blooming :(

Are they sturdy or do they need some help with staking?

Thanks

No, the stems are very sturdy. I have lots of them and over the years they've shrugged off rain, wind and hail - whatever nature throws at them.

They might lean slightly if reaching for a better sun position or the bulbs could be crowded and pushing each other a little askew - it's just kind of what they do.
