asiatic & orientals planted together OK and how many?
I'm wondering if there would be any problem with planting asiatics and orientals all together in the same spot. I'm wanting to put a variety of pinks clumped all the way down the drive and was thinking I'd like to spread out the blooming time.
I'm thinking that many orientals bloom later than asiatics (zone 5) and thought I'd just put like colors of both in the same spots.
Are there drawbacks to this approach?
Also, I've never done a lot of lilies before and hope to plant several hundred this fall (hopefully). I know they look great in mass, but is interspersed in a mixed border in clumps of 10 possibly pleasing? Conversely, is 20 too many per spot (10 asiatic 10 oriental)? It is about a 300 foot by 20 foot deep span of a drive that I'm going down and I don't know if 10 per spot is a decent number - or will that simply be swallowed up? I want them to be visible as you look down the lane.
