Asiatic lily - winter care

Posted by dragyn51 z5 NE (My Page) on

I love the beautiful color of the Elgrado Asiatic Lily (Red to almost burgundy)

I read about cutting the blooms off when they are done but leave the stem. In the fall after cutting the stem down, can I leave them in the ground to come up next year like day lilies etc. I have never had good luck with finding a good place to store bulbs so they usually never grow the next season.

Will it kill them for sure to leave them in the ground or can it be done?

I don't have the Lily you mentioned, but have tons of others. I leave all my lilies in the ground. My asiatics come back reliably every year and multiply readily.

Good luck with yours. :-)

As a fellow Nebraskan, you can leave them in the ground, they are extremely hardy here. Mine have multiplied again and again. I think the secret is a well drained area and a little shade. Stay cool - Piegirl
