Someone on this forum told me they are really lilies? Here are the first blooms, planted six bulbs early this Spring.

So very pretty, I used to grow them quite a few years ago, I also grew a yellow one, I really like their fragrance.

Do they multiple Annette? I may want to move them, as I think they are a little taller than I wanted in that space. They are pretty aren't they?

need spellcheck

I meant "multiply". :)

I only grew them in pots as they won't winter here, they are classed as tender bulbs. I let them go dormant in the fall and started them up again in the spring, not putting them outside until it warmed up, Mayish. I don't think you will be able to winter yours in the ground, best to dig them before frost. I believe they will multiply but I didn't have mine long enough to find out.

Oh, those are very pretty! I planted 10 of them and am waiting for bloom. What is the pretty blue plant in the container behind it? Campanula?

They used to be classified in the lily family, but now in Amaryllidaceae.

They do multiply. I just keep them in a pot which I put in the ground in the summer, and then just pull out and put in the garage for winter. Unfortunately, last fall I forgot to bring them in, which is too bad because they'd multiplied so much that they needed to be divided. But I found and bought more this spring, and they are now about to bloom.

The blue flower is Lobelia, an annual.

Dig the bulbs up in the Fall? I wonder if that will be the case for me? I'll have to do some research, as I am not good at remembering to dig up bulbs for the winter.

Oh yeah, you'll have to dig them...

Here is a link that might be useful: info for hymenocallis
