Lilies come in such a variety of colors and bloom times. I feel everyone should have lilies in their garden for summer color. In addition, it's easier to find room for lilies in the perennial garden because they usually are taller and skinnier plants.

Rita on the north shore of Long Island, New York zone 6/7, where it is humid during our Long Island summers.
