Sun/Shade Lilies not blooming!
I am new to lilies and planted a bunch of bulbs in the spring - some oriental, some asiatic (I received a few mixed bags of bulbs). Some of these are planted in our wooded garden, where they are under trees and get lots of shade, with dappled sun. These lilies have grown and look healthy, are about 12 - 18 inches tall, and one has buds on it (but the rest don't). The other lilies are planted in almost full sun (with either some morning or some afternoon shade). These lilies have only grown to about 4 inches tall. They still look nice and green but have stopped growing and certainly don't have any buds on them. When I first planted them I figured the ones in sun would do really well and the ones in shade might not, but it seems to be the opposite. What am I doing wrong? They are all planted in about the same soil (the natural clay, mixed with some good woodland compost, mixed with some garden soil). And they all get the same amount of watering. Should I just move they sunny lilies to the shade next year? Or give them another year to get adjusted?
