White lilies... please recommend

joannembAugust 13, 2009

My brain is spinning--there is so much to learn! As a newbie, I am tying to learn as much as I can here. Thank you for putting up with my multiple posts.

I have 2 varieties of lilies narrowed down: Bright Diamond (asiatic) and Casablanca (oriental)

In order to have blooms all summer long.... what others might I add? Trying to find a white dwarf variety so I have some shorter ones (would prefer shorter to taller anyway...)

Any suggestions? I think I'm in need of early bloomers. I can't for the life of me find a white dwarf either :(

Thanks again :)

For a dwarf white - look for the "Pixie" series of Asiatics which come in all colors including white. It will likely have maroon/dark freckles. I'm sure bulbs can be mail ordered if you're so inclined, but the Pixie lilies are very popular stock items (fully grown and budded) at Wal-mart, Home Depot, Lowes, and Menard's garden centers in the spring. They're my earliest blooming lilies - June here in zone 4.
