Leucocoryne
"Outdoor Culture - Soil, light rich sand. Position, sunny well-drained border. Plant Sep-Jan, placing bulbs 4 inches (10cms) deep and 2 inches (5 cms) apart. Lift and replant annually.
Pot Culture - Compost, 2 parts sandy loam and 1 part leaf-mould. Place 5 bulbs 3 inches (7.5cm) deep in pot 4.5 inches (11.125 cm) in diameter. Plunge pots in peat in cold frame or under staging in cool greenhouse in sunny part of greenhouse or frame. Water moderately from time bulbs commence to grow until flowers fade, then gradually cease, keeping bulbs dry till growth recommences. Temperature, Sep-Mar 40-50F (5-10C), Mar-Sep 50-60F (10-15C). Pot, Sep-Oct.
Propagation - By seeds sown in February or March in sandy soil in temperature 55-60F (; by offsets detached when bulbs are lifted and grown on in same way." from Sanders' Encyclopedia of Gardening. Revised by A.G.L. Hellyer Editor of Amateur Gardening. Published by W.H. and L. Collingridge Limited in 1952.


"In their native habitats, they receive their rainfall during the winter months, with little moisture afterward. Although they will withstand mild frosts during their dormant state (late summer into autumn), the bulbs will not survive where winter temperatures fall into the mid 20sF, and, even at this temperature, will require the protection of a mulch or a wall facing the sun. The grasslike leaves, which are produced at or below ground level are just maturing or even have died down by the time the first flowers are seen. Strong stems support the several umbellate flowers.
Culture - In areas where there is little or no danger of frost from mid-January on, the bulbs can be grown outdoors, in full sun and in well-drained soil. In all other areas they should be grown in pots and protected, preferably in a cool greenhouse, where all cold is excluded. Moisture is necessary at the time of planting but keep barely moist until the foliage is observed. Then, additional amounts of water should be given, but never allow bulbs to sit in cold, wet soil. As soon as all danger of frost is past the containers can be moved outdoors into a sunny location. Repot only after the resting period is completed. Leave in the same container for 2-3 years. Each year, in late autumn, prior to the onset of growth, a few inches of soil should be removed from the top and replaced with a well-draining soil mix. Flowering generally occurs in the third year of growth from seed." from Bulbs Volume II, I-Z with Appendixes and Indexes by John E. Bryan. Published by Christopher Helm (Publishers) Ltd in 1989.

I Asiatic Hybrid Lilies

Lilies come mainly from the temperate woodlands of the Northern Hemisphere; therefore, they do not like dry heat.They are usually found growing near shrubs and other plants that shade their roots and keep the bulbs cool and moist. Lilies come in a huge variety of colors, shapes and sizes and can be grown both indoors and out. Some have strict soil requirements while others can be grown in ordinary garden soil. Lilies bloom from mid-spring to early fall depending upon the variety. Most Lilies are excellent cut flowers, each blossom often living for up to 8 days. However, when cutting for indoors, make sure to leave as much of the stem and leaves on the plant as possible in order to store food for the next year's flowers.
See Introduction for further planting and cultivation details in the ground and pots. Plant 3, 7 or 11 bulbs in clumps in the ground from December-April.

"The most important part of any bulb is the basal plate, upon which the scales are arranged.The scales themselves are modified leaves that are used for storage. Unlike a tulip or narcissus, the bulbs of Liliums must be handled with care. When lifting and dividing, for example, it pays to take extra care, especially with the species that produce stoloniferous roots. These roots are able to form new bulbs along their length, often developing at some distance from the original planting location.
Lilies should be planted to a depth that corresponds to twice the height of the bulb. Thus a bulb that is 4 inch (10cms) from top to bottom should be planted with 8 inches (20 cms) of soil on top.The only exception to this is Lilium candidum, which should always be planted close to soil level, burying it only 0.5 or 1 inch (1.25-25 cms) deep. This is because this species produces a rosette or tuft of leaves at soil level which remains green. It prefers to be planted where it will enjoy some shade during the hottest part of the day." from Bulbs Volume II, I-Z by John E. Bryan. Published by Timber Press in 1989. ISBN 0-88192-101-7.

Lilium Division I (Asiatic hybrids) - These are generally grown for their large, showy flowers. Each bulb will produce several flowers, held on one, sturdy flower stem, above the narrow leaves. There are three types of flowers in this division, upward facing, outward facing and pendant flower.

Problems
"For the average gardener, Asiatic hybrid lilies are perhaps the easiest lilies to grow. Usually pest free, but potential diseases include:

  • (1) lily mosaic virus (prompt control of aphids which vector the disease is highly recommended, since there is no cure once infection occurs);
  • (2) bulb rot (particularly in wet, poorly drained soils); and
  • (3) Botrytis. Plants may need staking if grown in too much shade (stems weaken) or in locations exposed to strong winds.

This is one of the dwarf Pixie series, bred originally for their compact habit in containers, but equally as unique and useful in the garden. Plants look their best when massed together in groups towards the front of the border, but are equally at home in the rock garden. Flowers are large, upfacing soft sorbet-orange trumpets, colourful but lacking in fragrance. Excellent for cutting.

Growing the Butter Pixie and other dwarf Asiatic lilies is quite easy. Plant the bulbs in fall or spring approximately 6 inches deep in organic rich soil. Best if planted in the ground or in containers with well draining soil in groupings of 3 or more bulbs. If planting in clay soil that will stay damp during winter, it would be best to plant the bulbs slightly higher as they do not tolerate wet or soggy soil (with a handful of sand under each bulb). After blooming, cut the stems down to no less than half for the fall and winter duration. This will allow the bulbs to absorb necessary nutrients back in for hibernation. The pixie lilies are fast multipliers and will need to be dug and divided every 3 or so years.

II Martagon Hybrid
Lilies

Martagon lilies are classic choices for old style gardens. Perfect for the edge of treed woodlots, but as with all bulbs in such areas, protect from tunneling moles, gophers, etc., using wire cages or raised planters with hardware cloth stapled to the bottom as a barrier.
Martagon hybrids are derived from L. Martagon (Martagon Lily; Turk's-Cap Lily). They produce their 2- to 4-inch (5-10 cms), nodding flowers in early summer. The flowers come in white, yellow, orange, tangerine, mahogany, brown, lavender, or lilac. Martagon hybrids can reach heights ranging from 3 to 6 feet (36-72 inches = 90-180 cms).

V Longiflorum Hybrid
Lilies

Just like the Asiatic varieties we featured recently, the secret to cultivating lilies successfully is cool soil with good drainage. Choose a spot where the soil will remain cool, for example near shrubs, and ensure the flowerbed is thoroughly dug up. Lilies will struggle to grow if their soil is poor and compacted, as it will stop water from soaking down to the bulb’s deepset roots. A layer of mulch will also aid growth and assist in keeping the soil cool and moist. As long as the soil is cool, Lilium will thrive in a spot that receives light shade to full sun. The sunshine will help the foliage and flowers flourish. Be careful of exposing your potted lilies to full sun though as they prefer to be protected from direct sun and heat.
Longiflorum hybrids, derived from the popular L. longiflorum (Easter Lily), can be grown from zones 6 to 11 and with protection, zone 5. These hybrids produce aromatic, white, trumpet-shaped flowers. They grow to about 3 feet (36 inches = 90 cms) high and bloom in mid-summer, although they can be forced to bloom indoors for Easter.

VI Trumpet Hybrid
Lilies

Trumpet hybrids were derived from Asiatic species. These Lilies grow from 4 to 6 feet (48-72 inches = 120-180 cms) high and produce large, 6- to 10-inch (15-25 cms) flowers in the summer.
Lilies can be planted at any time from early autumn, to mid-spring. Planting in autumn often helps them settle in and become better established before they start to put on their new spring growth, but spring planting is a better option if your soil is heavy and wet during winter. Choose a sunny spot, preferably where the plant receives a little light shade at its base, and plant each bulb 15-20cm (6-8in) deep in a well-drained soil, enriched with well-rotted organic matter or leaf mould. Space them at approximately 30cm (12") intervals and provide support before the flowers appear. Deadhead the faded blooms promptly and cut the dead stems back to ground level at the end of autumn.

Easy to grow in the flower border, preferring a sunny spot. Mulch in march to protect juvenile growth from frost.

Lilies are best planted in autumn when the bulbs are still plump, but they can still be planted in spring. Between August and March, choose a sunny spot where the plant can keep its feet in the shade. Plant 15-20cm (6-8in) deep in a well-drained soil, enriched with well-rotted organic matter or leaf mould, using a marker to minimise any unnecessary disturbance. Stake with ring stakes or bamboo canes in spring before the flowers appear. Deadhead the faded blooms and cut the stems back to ground level at the end of autumn.

VII Oriental Hybrid
Lilies

Oriental hybrids were mostly derived from Lillium auratum and Lillium speciosum. These beautiful plants range in height from 2 to 8 feet. They produce huge flowers up to a foot (1 foot = 12 inches = 30 cms) across. The pleasantly scented blossoms are borne in late summer. They are bowl-shaped with recurving petals. They come in white, pinks, deep reds, and bicolors. These are great for growing in containers, but may need staking because of their size.
Oriental lilies have very large outward facing flowers and are very scented. They need an acid soil.
The bulbs are best planted in autumn while they are still plump. They should go in 2-3 times their own depth and at the equivalent spacing between bulbs. In the border, they enjoy well-drained soil in full sun, with shade at the base. Alternatively they can be planted in deep containers, using loam-based compost, such as John Innes No2.

Cut flower.
Can be used at edges of woodland.

Lily bulbs & bulbils are never really dormant, not even in winter, & they do not store well, so should be planted right away, usually around mid to late October.

Cut flowers when the first flower is first opening. The flower lasts from 5-9 days in the vase. Pull the pollen sacks off when the flower opens to keep pollen from staining linens beneath the vase. If pollen should get on clothes or linens, let it dry before wiping it off. If wiped when wet, the pollen will stain.
To grow lilies well, mulch with composted manures or compost and shredded bark to keep the roots cool while adding humus to the soil.

VIII Miscellaneous
Lilies

Miscellaneous hybrids are any hybrids that do not fall into any other division.

Orienpet lilies tend to have large, broad, trumpet-shaped flowers with a strong sweet fragrance. Once they have flowered they will not bloom again until the following year, so be sure to plant them with ornamentals that look great later in the season. This lily prefers full to partial sun and neutral, well-drained, humus-rich soil. They grow from scaled bulbs that are easily planted. The typical depth is 8 inches (20 cms) for orienpets.

IX Species Lilies

The Wild species are natives to North America, Europe, and Asia. Wild species are the kind that still occur growing in the wild and which haven't yet been affected by hybridization. Lilium auratum (Gold-banded Lily) is one of the most beautiful of the wild species. It bears up to thirty-five, star-shaped, highly aromatic flowers per stem, usually in August and sometimes in September. The large flowers can reach a diameter of 10 to 12 inches (25-30 cms). They are white with a golden-yellow stripe down the center and numerous tiny red speckles. Lilium lancifolium (Tiger Lily) is a well-known native of Japan and China. Its flowers are borne in late summer atop 4- to 5-foot (48-60 inches = 120-150 cms) stems. They consist of reflexed, bright red or orange-red petals covered with little speckles. An interesting characteristic of this flower is that bulbils appear in the leaf axils. This Lily has a played an important part in the development of the Asiatic hybrids and other lilies.

It is one of the last lilies to flower and therefore should be grown in a large pot or in cool greenhouse where it can be protected from frosts.
A nice humus-rich soil in light shade with the shelter of something like a rhododendron or small shrub, is ideal.
From India, Nepal, Bhutan, Sikkim where it is found on limestone slopes in open coniferous forests.

Unspecified Lilies

Lilies like their roots kept cool so a good mulch or ground covers to shade the soil is a good idea. One way I have planted them was at the base of a Weigelia shrub. When the shrub flowered in May the branches would weep from the flower's weight. Later; as the lilies came up through the branches, the branches supported the taller lilies while shading their bases.
Improper drainage is usually the reason lilies fail in the garden. My lilies are normally planted in raised beds to accomplish good drainage. If the bulbs are spring planted they won't flower as well the first year, but the following year should give maximum bloom. I prefer planting mine in the fall, but sometimes I will plant in spring when a beautiful lily catches my eye.
Lilies rarely go dormant; therefore, they generally require regular water year round. Water when the top 2 inches (5 cms) of soil has dried out. Since many lilies have tall floral stems, it may be best to flood the soil versus using overhead irrigation. Overhead watering can topple tall stems.

These lilies can't cope with lime or chalky soil, so it is essential to grow them either in acid soil or in pots filled with ericaceous compost. The lily is attractive to wildlife, although gardeners should be aware that these lilies are also highly poisonous to domestic cats.

When planting, each bulb should be surrounded with a little sharp sand both under and above the bulb to keep slugs away and to ward off excessive wetness. As most liliums are stem rooting we strongly recommend you plant at 15cm deep. They give a much better display when planted in clumps of 3, 6 or 12 bulbs (45cm apart).
Lilium bulbs will greatly appreciate the shelter of low growing shrubs or other plants near their roots. In active growth, apply water freely and it is advised that every two weeks you apply a high potash liquid fertilizer. Deadhead after flowering and let the stems die back before cutting them back to the ground. Prompt deadheading ensures a vigorous growth the following year

How to Force Lilies to Bloom
While there are numerous flowers that share their wonderful aroma with the world, lilies (Lilium spp.) have a distinctive perfume that wafts through your garden or home. When summer comes and goes and you yearn for the smell and vibrancy of a container full of lilies, consider forcing the bulbs to bloom. Forcing is a gardener’s way of encouraging a bulb to bloom a time of year not typically known for bloom production.

  • 1. Remove any fruit or vegetables from one of your refrigerator’s crisper drawers so you can use it for cold storage of the bulbs. Place the lily bulbs in a brown paper bag, or several bags, and fold over the top to close. Store the bulbs in the refrigerator for about 12 weeks. Do not put vegetables or fruit in the same drawer with the bulbs.
  • 2. Line a shallow gardening pot with landscape fabric or newspaper.
  • 3. Fill a bucket with a mixture of 3 parts garden soil, 2 parts peat moss and 1 part sand.
  • 4. Add about 2 inches (5 cms) of the soil mixture to the container.
  • 5. Place the bulbs in the soil mixture, close together, so the sides almost touch. Position the bulbs so the pointed ends face upward. Bulb forcing is not the same method as planting, so you don’t need to follow the normal spacing considerations.
  • 6. Add more soil to the container so only the top 1/2 to 1 inch (1.25-2.5 cm) of the bulb's noses peek out of the soil.
  • 7. Place a saucer under the pot and water the bulbs and soil thoroughly. Keep the soil moist at all times, but do not allow the soil to become soggy or the bulbs will rot.
  • 8. Place the pot in a bright location in your home or in an enclosed patio that receives a good amount of sun. The optimum temperature for forcing planted bulbs is between 65 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit (18-21 degrees Celsius).
  • 9. Fertilize the bulbs with a water-soluble fertilizer every two to three weeks. You should see lily blooms within eight to 10 weeks.
