Thanx BUT i was talking to Polly saying the second year for Lady Alice was a dissapointment.They must be over 6 feet and really small stems and droop a lot.
After reading your article I believe they dont get enough sun.
They will get moved to the few remaining spaces in full sun and out of the deer snack trail.
Its always something.

I learn something every day. Sometimes it's trial and error. I push the limits sometimes on shade. It gets so hot here that some of the orientals I love so much will burn (Lisa's are the exception), so some protection for them here is helpful for their longevity.

My brother lived in Oconomowoc Wis.formany years.Its 30 miles west of Milwaukee.
I visited in August.It sure is hot.
The lady alice's are in morning shade until late afternoon,I doubt they get the 6 hours.
Trial and error has worked for me.I'm not much for research.I just go for it and hope.

'Lady Alice' really tolerates the heat nicely here. She is in full sun and appears to laugh at the purple pink OTs that fade in the sun. Smiling

Speaking of fading and such.
I posted a question on Lily forum about lily virus.
Niel said he thought the Robina pix I posted looked virused.
I read a bit on Google and believe the virus also affects the leaves too.
My lilies with broken bloom color have great stems and leaves.
Do you think its something besides virus?
