This is a plant I steer away from, it always seems too formal for my mopsy garden. I will be paying close attention to how folks mix it up, as it is such a pretty flower. Bring it on!
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

I must say I have them everywhere and I don't consider my garden elegant. They pair nicely with coneflowers, delphiniums, peonies, daylilies, zinnias... And there are so many different types, heights colors, various bloom times. Some have fragrance while others do not. And the bulb planted does not take up a lot of room.

I'm sure the problem is at my end, which is why I look forward to inspiration!

Deb, try some of the short lilies to plant in front of taller plants. There are many colors and forms in the Tiny series here:

Keep in mind that lilies don't rebloom so you want to pair it with plants having longer or continuous bloom or nice foliage plants. If you like the shorter ones you might decide to try taller ones for background color.

You appear to live in a place where lilies not only grow, but grow exceptionally beautifully. It is my hope that this week you get inspired. Thumbs up
