We moved to a new house recently and this started coming up in the flower beds. I'm really curious as to what it is, any help is appreciated!

Maybe dwarf Asiatic lilies because at this stage they don't look like they will shoot up to be tall. They may have started from one bulb then multiplied. You can carefully dig and separate after the foliage dies back in the autumn.

How about posting photos on the Lily Forum here when they start blooming? I'm curious to see what they look like.

If they are dwarf Asiatic lilies I'm very excited! I searched them and they look absolutely beautiful.

I will try to remember to post a picture of them when they bloom for you! Smiling

They finally bloomed! I have some pictures of them, they are absolutely stunning! Also they are a lot taller than the last time I showed you, they probably aren't the dwarf kind. Why are there two completely different kinds of lily in one plant?

Dwarf Asiatic lilies. I can see that they are short. I don't see two different blooms on one plant. Blooms do slowly fade over several days.

Well there's a big clump of lilies, and the top shoots have orange flowers, and only one of the bottom shoots has the pink flower. But I guess they're just are different lilies for different plants. And if these are short, how tall are normal lilies?!

Typically the regular ones are 3-5 feet tall. But I have one that is 8 feet tall!

Wow 8 feet tall, they must be gigantic! Could you send me a pic?

Also the tallest stalk on my lily plant is only about 2 1/2 feet tall, so you're definitely right!

Here you go... the tall one in the center rear. It is surrounded by its siblings, some of which are nearly as tall. In order to pollinate the blooms I have to try to get the step ladder in close enough to reach up, not an easy task. The cyclone fence is 6 feet tall.

Another view, it is leaning toward the camera. The wood fence is also 6 feet tall.

These are all sibling seedlings. The mother, whose name is 'Awesome', won best of show a couple of years ago at the North American Lily Society convention.


About your lilies, come fall I think you should carefully dig up the clump and separate them out so they have space. This is done when the leaves have died back or almost completely died back. Leave the stems in if they don't easily pull out. Later in early winter they should easily pull out, you just don't want to be rough on the bulb-stem connection.

Wow that is certainly impressive! How long does it take for them to grow that height from when they first emerg from the soil?

Pretty quick! They started emerging sometime in March so we are looking at around 3 months to this point. This particular strain seems to be much more aggressive growers than most of my commercial lilies.

Wow those are some amazing lilies! I can't imagine having those in my yard, they're gigantic!

Thank you for the advice on my lilies, I will most certainly do that later in the year. Smiling
