Hi Nancy, Welcome! to ATP

Is your lily a Daylily or one of the Asiatic lilies?

Maybe one of these ladies can help you.
@daylily Juli can help you with that information.

I am not familiar with this name or type of plant... "golden stone lilies"?

Nancy, if they are the daylilies Evan linked above, it would depend on your location, and your preference. Here in Ohio, I rarely cut daylilies back before winter, instead, I clean the beds up in late March or early April. I don't have much mulch, so the old foliage gives a bit of winter protection for the plsnts. But, other people in my area do cut foliage off in winter.

If they are a type of true lily, I can't help, as I know very little about that type if plant.

Is this your lily?
http://www.bdlilies.com/l1066.html

If so, it's an asiatic lily, happy to stay where it is down to zone 3. I haven't bothered doing anything about the foliage on my asiatics, but I'm a slob about those things. Whistling

Ah, here it is in our database. Interesting that the database entry shows it only being hardy to zone 6. And I see that @Trish and @ge1836 both have this lily. Maybe one of them will have some suggestions.

This is not an Asiatic lily as described in the B&D catalog. It is registered as a longiflorum/Asiatic hybrid lily (aka LA lily) in the RHS Lily Register. Unless I find some specific, reliable information showing otherwise, LAs should be mulched in zones colder than Z5.

As for fall care, I cut all of my liliums back to about 3 inches after the leaves have completely died. The little stump serves as a marker for where to look for spring emergence.

I don't know where the "azucena" comes from. This is either a seller's gimmick or we are talking about a whole different plant, not true lilium. If that is the case, then ignore all I have written.

And I just noticed that I forgot to include the link to the database entry. Duh. Hilarious!
Lily (Lilium 'Golden Stone')

And for the record, "azucena" is Spanish for "lily." Smiling

More great information.
Has anyone checked out this post by Evan?
Anyone have a photo to add to the entry? I see it is an older variety.

I did take a look at those links, the starting point of my research on this. What we do know is that Lilium 'Golden Stone' exists and is authenticated. In fact it is a rather popular lilium cultivar.

Lilium longiflorum is the species that our Easter Lily is derived from. They are warm climate lilies and that is likely why their crosses with Asiatic lilies tend to bump their zone up a couple of notches.
