The hardy lily is an often under-utilized summer flowering bulb in perennial gardens and container gardens. Lilies are tough, hardy perennial plants that once established in your garden will continue to perform for you year after year with little care.bBy planting a wide variety you can augment your existing perennial and shrub plantings, or kick-start a new landscape.

Try plating lilies in odd number groups of 3, 5 or 7 for maximum color impact. Another way to extend your bloom time is to plant a group of asiatic lilies with a group of oriental lilies. Asiatic Lilies and Oriental Lilies bloom at different times, therefore extending your bloom period. Add Day Lillies and you now have a full season of Big colorful Lilly Blooms.

 Lilies are important as large showy cold hardy perennial flowering garden plants and make great cut flowers and provide gorgeous color shows during most of the summer season. Most lily species are reliably hardy as low as Zone 3. There are about 80 species and several hundred cultivars available ranging in height from 2 to 8 feet.. They are available in white, yellow, red, pink, orange, maroon and bicolors.

Lilies need well-drained soil in an area that receives sun or part shade. The ideal situation will place the lily flowers and leaves in sun while shading their roots. They need to be kept moist, with good drainage. . Fertilize lilies lightly monthly starting when the shoots begin to emerge. Tall lilies should be staked and protected from high winds. Mulch well to keep lily roots cool. Do not Remove blooms when they die to prevent seedpod formation, these seed pods send energy to the bulb as they break down to help your plant mutiply and over winter (unless ofcourse you don't want it to multiply because it is doing a little too prosperous) Cut stems off at ground level after they turn brown, but never cut them down while the leaves are still green.
