Questions on Easter and Rubrum Lillies

Hi Board Members!

I'm very new to the board and have a few questions on some Easter and Rubrum lillies I was just given. I am thinking of planting the Easter lillies around a knockout rose tree I have in my front yard. The tree is about 3-4 feet tall and will probably grow another foot or so. How tall will the easter lillies get? I just don't want them to overwhelm the tree. Also, how often can I expect Blooms in my zone?

As for the Rubrum lillies, how tall to they get and how often will they bloom. They smell GREAT, but I've seen they can get up to 6 feet tall so I'm debating on where to put them.

Thanks in advance for you help!

RE: Questions on Easter and Rubrum Lillies

The height of the Lilies depends greatly on the growing conditions. Even in the same garden Lilies can have different size if planted in different places. All numbers you can find in the Internet are approximate.
All Lilies bloom once a year - for 2-3 weeks, depending on how many buds they have.
Please note that in your zone they might not bloom well: Lilies need a cold period (vernalization) every winter for blooming.

RE: Questions on Easter and Rubrum Lillies

Easter lilies do fine all the way down to Jones Creek and maybe even farther. Jones Creek Texas is about 20 miles from the Gulf Coast and I have seen a lot of them there for quite a few years. They all seemed to stand 3'-4' tall and look great. Many people down this way get them as gifts during the Easter season and they just stick them inot the ground and let them go.
