Asiatic Lily not Blooming

Posted by arlene212 10 (My Page) on

Hi, I purchased some beautiful orange asiatic lilies about two months ago, I planted them in a pot and they were beautiful for about a month. Now all the flowers are gone, with no sign of new buds. The stalks are very healthy, they look great. Is this the normal cycle of this plant? Is there anything I can do? Any advise, or help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Lilies only bloom once per year. That's the nature of the plant. Those lovely green leaves are busy making food and helping the bulb store up energy to bloom again next year.

In your zone they will not bloom again if you will not chill them for several weeks in winter.

Thank's for the feedback.

RE: Asiatic Lily not Blooming

Yes you need to give your Lilies a chilling period. They will not bloom again inless they are given a period of about 6 weeks where they are frozen. It is best if you can leave them in the pot and freeze the whole thing. After that they will regrow. In zone 10 this is a problem willl bulbs that NEED to bew frozen like tulips, daffs, lilies, etc.
