Lily in USDA zone 10

socalgal_gw Zone USDA 10b Sunset 24June 15, 2013

I received some lily bulbs this year as a bonus from a bulb company. They are longiflorum x asiatic hybrids. I live in USDA zone 10/Sunset zone 24 and have never had any luck with lilies before, but these did fantastically.

They are almost done blooming. What do I do with them now? Will they come back next year with no winter chill? Should I throw them out? If not, how do I care for them? They are in the ground.

Thanks for any advice,

Longiflorum Asiatic (LA type) might do well for you. I've talked with folks in New Orleans and Tampa that are flowering them successfully. So, I guess there's only one real way to find out and that is: try it. Just leave it in the ground over the winter rainy season--and make sure it has good drainage and that it doesn't get too wet.

Thank you, I'll leave them in the ground and see if they come back next year!
