scads if Oriental lilies in my garden are becoming Asiatics
? I dug up all the aisiatics, cuz I didn't like them, and restarted with Oriental, cuz I love the smell, well, the orientals seem to be disappearing, and Asiatics are coming in now instead. Don't tell me I am dreaming, or someone is replacing, cuz I am the only one here, and the Asiatics get more prolific all the time, and I am down to a couple Orientals, when I had just tons of them before.
I am going to redig all the A ones and replant with O, am just sick over this, noticed it starting last year, and has become worse this year. is there anyone else out there with even a similar problem?

RE: Put on your thnking caps, and tell me why the

You probably missed some bulbs when you dug out the asiatics and now they have grown to blooming size and are reproducing. They are also a much more prolific and vigorous plant than the orientals. In many area Orientals tend to be short-lived. They are not as forgiving of growing conditions which don't meet their exacting standards, the Prima Donnas of the lily world so to speak.
