I must be the only person who can't seem to do well with potted plants. I would love to grow the shorter guys in pots to set in spots in the garden where the soil isn't conducive to other growth. I am putting chips in one spot at the top of the pond for that reason but pots would look gorgeous if I can level it a bit before chipping.

I think I grow lilies in about a dozen big pots.
Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.

Any particular size or just the sort guys. Not necessarily the 'tiny' ones, but not the 6 footers either?

A bunch of the Tiny series. Others I recall are Sweet Lord, Sunny Sulawes, Ladylike, After Eight, Showinner, Crysum, Vermeer, Italia, Stargazer, Garden Party, Salmon Star, Mona Lisa. Mostly Asiatics. Last 4 are Orientals. Some are grown only for a year then transplanted into garden, others have been in pots for several years.
Under 4 foot, usually 3' or less.

Thanks. I printed off your list and will look for them over summer for fall ordering.
