bulbs vs. plants (roots that look like a plant)??
I moved inot my house in the summer of 06. The original owner was an avid gardener and the woman we bought it from let everything overgrow :O( I have a ton of what I believe are lillies. I have been working on getting the garden back into shape and dug up a bunch of them. As I was separating them and transplanting them I noticed that some were bulbs and others looked more like they were just roots and some even looked like tubers. Are these all lillties? Different types? Which is which??
I think I have another kind of lilly as well - it's one stem with spikey type leaves (as opposed to the others that look like grass). The bulb of these looks kind of like a bulb of garlic. Are these lillies or am I totally confused?
This is my first home and I love to garden but I'm young and still learning. Any help is much appreciated!!
