True Lilies

Lilium

These are the "True" Lilies and do not include Daylilies. They are native to temperate to boreal regions of the Northern Hemisphere, 25 species in North America alone.
They are among the boldest of all summer flowering bulbs for use in temperate climates.
Most Lilies prefer full sun to partial shade on moist, fertile, humus-rich, well drained soil with abundant organic material. In climates where winter temperature goes below 0 F ( -18 C ), is recommended to mulch them during winter. Remove old blooms before they set seed to preserve energy for growth ( unless you plan to use the seed ), feeding is recommended during mid-spring then again late summer. Plant the bulbs in autumn or early spring in a pocket of sand 6 to 9 inches deep or 2 to 3 times deeper than the bulb is tall. Rodents and squirrels do like to eat the bulbs, protection such as old window screening may be necessary on some sites. Deer may also be a problem in some areas.
Propagation is easy via division or the bulbils. The clumps can be divided every few years during autumn then replanted with the bulbs seperated.
Propagation is generally from bulbils ( small bulbs that are born at the leaf axils ) that are planted when ripened. The taller Lilies may flop over easily if planted too shallow.
