Asiatic lilies are perennials. They grow best in full sunshine, in moist, well draining soils. You can find a sunny spot in your garden, dig a large area and incorporate some compost or other organic matter, then level the soil. Once that's done, dig a hole the exact size of the container, unpot your lily, and set it in the ground. Smooth the garden soil over the root mass to fill it all in and then water it well. You can cut off the spent flowers as they fade but leave the stem and foliage alone. It will die down at the end of the growing season and then you can cut everything down to soil level. Pile a few inches of compost over the top to provide some winter protection. In the spring a new flowering stem will emerge. Enjoy your new lily!
