what unusual or late lilies to buy?
I have a credit to spend at Van Engelen. I want to spend it on lily bulbs but want something late. I have a lot of asiatics (orange pixie, wine red pixie; pinks, and peaches in regular size), and my current orientals are all light pinks and whites. I don't need quantity this time so hope I can spend it at the sister site of Scheepers instead. What could I get that would be different in terms of color/and or form, and bloom time? I love the ones that are huge multi-branched towers of blooms, but don't know if that describes more than one variety.
I am tempted by the shade-growing turk's cap types but I don't have moist shade, it's dry shade. I have 2 shade areas: one terraced under ash trees, currently planted with hostas and astilbe, also species tulips and daffodils; dappled shade all day. The other is slightly moister shade that gets short periods of dappled sun. Can these be grown in dry shade?
I can also squeeze something into the main garden (mostly full sun) but it would have to be something smaller or at least narrower in spread.
