new purchase and a question

Posted by jodikay mn z4a (My Page) on

I just purchased 2 Vermeer and 2 Cassandra and I planted them near each other. My question is, we all hear the 'buy in 1, 3, 5 etc', so does this work for lilies as well? In fact, I might have bought the last 2 of each at the garden center. I was trying to figure out how to place them in my garden, as I am trying to get a fuller effect. Granted, newly planted but it sort of looks not so good right now. I don't like overcrowding but I don't like the sparse look either. Maybe I just need to wait next until next year and see how the fill out - ??

I am just getting into lilies, and can see I have been missing out these past few years.

Not sure I am not asking my question correctly, sorry if it sounds weird.

RE: new purchase and a question

I plant lilies in clumps of two, in drifts, and all sorts of ways. Unfortunately, I don't like a sparse look either, so I always plant them too close to the roses. Then I have to dig them back up 18 mos later and move them. I would wait until next year to see how they fill out and how the plants around them behave.
