Lily, Mixed Asiatic Planting Instructions
LILY , Mixed Asiatic
These early blooming lilies will provide a sweet aroma in your garden all summer long. These profuse blooming, star shaped white flower with hot pink ends will certainly stand out. For best results plant in well drained soil. Asiatic lilies will naturalize, plant in beds that allow for growth. These fragrant lilies are ideal for planting beds and containers. Blooms can be cut and used in arrangements.
To plant Lily Bulbs the bulbs should be planted with the nose of the bulb upward (or the roots facing downwards) and the Lollypop Asiatic Lily should be planted roughly 4-6" deep and 6-9" apart from one another. Note: For some bulbs you may not be able to tell which way is up or down, in these cases just plant them on their side and they will adjust on their own. Lily Bulbs are normally planted SPRING, and most Lollypop Asiatic Lily will begin to flower sometime in summer.
To ensure that bulbs survive without damage in locations with harsh winters, provide a blanket of mulch over the plants. Asiatic lilies grow well in U.S. Department of Agriculture hardiness zones 5 to 9 without mulch. Provide mulch for lilies grown in USDA hardiness zones 3 to 4, for extra protection. Mulch also prevents bulbs from heaving out of the soil through seasonal freezing and thawing, and protects bulbs from early spring's fluctuating temperatures, preventing the appearance of shoots easily damaged by frost.
