The Q&A Archives: How Garden Lilies Propagate

Question: How does the garden lily propagate? Thanks for your help! Bob LaMarche

Answer: Garden lilies propagate themselves by seed and by bulblets forming off the mother bulb. After a few years you may notice new growth coming from around the base of the bulb. Those are the bulblets and need to be divided off and set in their own spot to grow and flower. Also, some lilies will set seeds and young lily plants will sprout up. These may take a number of years before they will flower.
