Lily in USDA zone 10

I received some lily bulbs this year as a bonus from a bulb company. They are longiflorum x asiatic hybrids. I live in USDA zone 10/Sunset zone 24 and have never had any luck with lilies before, but these did fantastically.

They are almost done blooming. What do I do with them now? Will they come back next year with no winter chill? Should I throw them out? If not, how do I care for them? They are in the ground.

Thanks for any advice,

RE: Lily in USDA zone 10

Longiflorum Asiatic (LA type) might do well for you. I've talked with folks in New Orleans and Tampa that are flowering them successfully. So, I guess there's only one real way to find out and that is: try it. Just leave it in the ground over the winter rainy season--and make sure it has good drainage and that it doesn't get too wet.

Thank you, I'll leave them in the ground and see if they come back next year!
