I just got some Asiatic Lilies and put them in today. Very pretty
plants. I was wondering, though- will they spread? There were 3 stems
per pot, and I got 3 pots, and spaced them about 11 inches apart
(little card said 7-9 inch spacing, but I always take that with a
grain of salt).
Second question- I live in zone 6B and the soil is all sand- we're
close to the ocean. How would a persimmon tree fare here? We have full
sun on most of the property but there are some spots that are shaded
part of the day. Any help would be appreciated.
They will "spread", but not like daylilies. Each bulb (corm) will
multiply so that in a few years your 3 stems will be more. They
won't travel far from the original so if you want them to fill in an
area, you'll have to transplant some of the bulbs when they form. They
don't bush out, the leaves grow only along the stems so while they
flowers are prettier, in my opinion, than daylilies, they don't fill in
your planting area as well.
I put three in last year. They are SO beautiful, I wish they would
Two of them have made pups. I posted a question earlier about when to
separate out the pups
and replant them. Could somebody remind me on that? This is a mild
with not much "winter" (So. Calif coastal). Do I have to wait until
the leaves fall and plant "dies",
or what? Would really value your experience, esp. if in similar
i've transplanted them in almost every season except the dead
of winter and most will survive if you make sure they get
the right soil, water and light. some you might lose, but overall
you'll have plenty survive...
the best times i think are early fall and very early spring...
do half each season and compare results. :)
