We have had a nice little patch of Easter Lilies from years ago that are doing well. They of course bloom white. I would like to add another lily color (or two). I am not familiar with lilies in general. What type of lily would go great with my lilium longiflorum? And will they bloom around the same time? The Easter Lilies are planted behind a rock so whatever is co-planted with them will have to be just as tall or I will have to wait until I can divide the Easter Lilies. They have not bloomed yet.

Since they're white I would imagine you could pretty much use any color. I have a deep rose/pink next to mine.

@Abhege Are the colored ones just Asiatic Lilies? Are they the same thing and just as tall?? I tip my hat to you.

umm, I don't know much about lilies, but I think they are either Orientals or Asiatic.

Hi Cheryl, I don't know that much about lilies either but I bet if you asked over on the Lily Forum, they will have all kinds of great ideas for you.

I think Christine has the right idea. This forum is mostly populated by us permaculture types who are looking for useful combinations and color is probably the last thing we're thinking about with companion plantings. Smiling
