|Do Crimson Pixie Asiatic Lilies bloom just once or throughout the summer? If they do bloom more than once, what is the best care we can give them to enhance blooming?

|Lilies bloom once each year. The foliage manufactures energy which is stored in the bulb for the next season's flower display. To promote the biggest flowers, cut off the faded blooms and allow the foliage to remain all season long. In the fall it will die down to ground level. Next spring a new flowering stem will emerge and new flowers will develop.
