June is for Lilies in Zone 7

June 2, 2017

June is glorious in general, but one of the reasons is lilies.

I have many daylilies and a cluster of Asiatic lilies.  The daylily show has started with Barbara Mitchell, Fairy Tale Pink and an unknown gorgeous ruffled yellow.  These plants require little to no fertilizer.  I use organic bone meal and organic mushroom compost for the initial planting. That's it.  I haven't applied any additional fertilizer since.  I do divide them every three or four years.

 Yellow unknown- Don't you love the texture and frills?

 

Asiatic lily-  This opens as a soft cream and fades up to white.
