Then there are the smaller lilies; Stella de’Oro or happy returns that look good grown in the front of the garden. In the back or in the center grow Asiatic, Orientals, and tiger lilies in the back of the garden. These lilies will add interest and height to your flower garden.
If you want to add an exotic appeal to your yard and garden then grow tiger lilies. The lily is a summer blooming flower that will produce flowers in July and August. The photo card bellow is of my garden.
Grow lilies in full sun to part sun in well-drained acidic soil. If you have extremely hot summers then lilies will welcome partial shade. My summers are hot with temperatures soaring into the 100’s.
My lilies have four hours of morning sun, four hours of partial shade in the afternoon and four hours of late afternoon sun. I shelter them from the peak heat and they are healthy.
Backfill the hole with the remaining soil and water the lilies well. For multiple planting of lilies space your lilies 12 to 18 inches apart.
When lilies are above the ground apply mulch around them to help to maintain moisture and to discourage weed growth.
In autumn cut your lilies back.
