This is very odd here this year but I have an oriental that has split into 9 different plants from one bulb over one winter........did not take a pic of that one but it did bloom as it was supposed to last year with one flower...

and then there is Martagon Album?? not even sure if this is what it is or not.... Last year planted 3 bulbs and they were all duds and the plants never came up much or flowered at all.......so moved them and now there are five them this year..........only see one bloom coming if indeed that is what this lily is

not sure if all these will flower or not but wander what makes so many split this fast.......
none of the aisiactics split much at all and thought they would for sure.......

any thoughts, not complaining just wandering what is going on??
and if that is indeed Martagon Album that is going to bloom
and then how do I split all these up ?? at the end of the season.......after they bloom??

thanks

I did have this happen to an oriental last year.... it split 9 ways and bloomed 9 flowers......one per plant.... but the year before the bulb did not come up at all and people on here thought the plant was working on the bulb instead..
but this time it does not seem that way since they are not first year bulbs and they all bloomed last year nicely......
It does not seem to be any real answer from the lily breeders as well........

I did notice though that some lilies of the same variety...... the news one are up about 8 inches or so and last year bulb is up 4 feet but it is on the south side of the house
anything south seems to be doing really well. The lilies on the East are the slowest of them all here......
Even the North has some beds with good growth on them....

You certainly have an interesting case there, patweppler! Out of curiosity, have you had the soil tested? I am definitely not an expert, but I'm wondering if there's something in the conditions where you have them that is making them multiply so rapidly.

Are all the lilies that are doing this on the south side? What are the conditions like where you have them?
