Landini lily short-lived?
I planted a Landini lily (which I was absolutely in love with) and a MonteNegro lily at the same time, 3 or 4 years ago. Both are asiatics, I believe, and both were (are) in a raised bed mulched with chopped leaves in the fall.
Well the Montenegro is still growing strong, and has reproduced -- but this year there is absolutely no sign of the Landini. It was even in the best-draining area of the bed. I am in mourning, and wondering what happened to it. Are Landini lilies known to be short lived? Are they super particular about anything -- but it sure seemed to be happy the first couple of years, including last. I have had a hard time growing asiatics in other parts of the yard, though. Orienpets thrive however.
I haven't dug down into the bed, not wanting to disturb other plants that I have there. Although, come to think of it, there are one or two other things in that section that should be up by now but are MIA. ???
