Asiatic lilies in Zone 11

ifraser25(z11 Brazil)July 22, 2011

I wonder if anyone has grown Asiatic lilies in a tropical zone? I find they do well for a year or two then fizzle out, probably because they do not get a proper rest period. Would it be any good lifting the bulbs when the foliage dies back? Could they be just kept dry for a few months then replanted or would they need chilling? Our minimum temp is 10C 50F and it's often a lot warmer than that.

They do need vernalization, a chilling period. Some people have planted them in pots and stored them in an extra refrigerator for a couple of months,

Ditto. And lifting them would be harmful - Lily bulbs do not go dormant like other bulbs.
