Any special treatment or hints- I received 3 big fat bulbs.. I think they like slightly acid.. Your comments and success rates would help! Confused

Part shade or blooms may burn in hot sun, slightly acid, they have always been good performers for me, even now that I have alkaline soil. MULCH, lily bulbs like it. If the soil is too alkaline the leaves will be uniformly yellow, Orientals show this readily and a little elemental sulfur will go a long way.

Being an oriental one would expect a need for a definite acid soil. Although this is probably best, I have also found them remarkably tolerant of neutral soil. My best one grows in mostly shade. Drainage is very important. If you garden in clay soil, keep it on the dry side. L. auratum prefers moist soil, but in moist clay soils the species won't survive nearly as long.
