How to Have Lilies in Bloom All Summer Long
Lilies provide some of the garden's most extraordinary summer blooms. We created this Planning Guide for Lilies as a handy visual reference, so you can see at a glance, the shape, height and bloom time for each different type of lily. To enjoy a long season of color and fragrance, you'll want to plant several different types of lilies. Start with early-blooming Asiatics, include mid-season Oriental-Asiatic and Longiflorum-Asiatic hybrids, and fill your late summer garden with the dramatic and ultra-fragrant blossoms of Oriental lilies and Oriental-Trumpet hybrids. For variety, sprinkle in some species lilies -- and discover their unique charms.
