what happened to my princess lilies

awag80June 24, 2010

My wife received some potted princess lilies that were very attractive. When they stopped blooming, we planted them in the ground. When they came back up, our princess lilies were yellow lilies. How did this happen?

I have 4 princess liles, they are in pots now. i want to replant them in the ground in the fall. Do they need a lot of sun and how big will they get?

This forum is for Lilies (genus Lilium). Princess lilies are not Lilies. Please ask your questions on Perennials forum.

Alstroemeria is a tender bulb/corm. I think it might have not survived the winter, awag.

Robin, in NC it will probably do fine in the ground. I don't know how tall it would be in your climate. Google it or post your question in the bulb forum. Someone might be able to assist you there.
Good luck.
