Best time to order lily bulbs and best type to get?
I've been gardening for a few years now and I want to get some lily bulbs to go behind my roses in my backyard. The area is clay soil, full sun, and on a hill. I want to know when is the best time to plant them in my area (spring or fall) and what type should I get? I'd like to get something fragrant and fairly sturdy so I was leaning towards the Orienpet lilies but I was also looking at the Longiflorum Asiatic lilies. I was thinking of buying a mix from John Scheepers and supplementing with a few individuals from other places like Bluestone.
