Asiatic lily








Lilies are both easy to grow and require little to no care. In fact they are so easy to grow that you may find many of them growing beautifully along the roadside and highways. These Asiatic lilies are different from the Tiger lily in that the Tiger lily has black markings similar to the tiger they were named after.

It is recommended to give your lily flowers a little lime once a year to keep the soil from becoming acidic. Lilies usually don't have any insect or disease problems unless it is a very wet year. If that is the case you may want to treat with a fungicide. Lilies grow from bulbs and should be planted about six inches deep in the soil. Over several years, the bulbs will work their way toward the surface so it is a good practice, every three years, to dig up the bulbs in either late fall (after they have gone dormant) or early spring and replant them. By this time they may have multiplied giving you a nice display of lilies in your garden.
