June is for Lilies in Zone 7

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.

Fairy Tale Pink

Barbara Mitchell

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

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