I have some St. Joseph lilies in pots. I have been overwintering them in the basement for a few years. One is blooming this year. I have several bulbs and would like to grow outside. I would like to increase my bulbs also. Any informatiion regarding these would greatly be appreciated, especially from those in zone 6 who are growing them. Brenda

RE: St. Joseph lily-anyone growing in Ky or zone 6

I don't grow these, but I have successfully overwintered the tender Christmas amaryllis outdoors. They required a very sheltered spot though, but I think for those, good drainage was very important. I have lots of clay soil, mine all came through a couple of years outdoors, & came up the next spring. We had a very wet spring though, and they all rotted.
