Almost any bulb dealer and many online nurseries have them. You can also get some types at nurseries and garden centers but you won't get much of a selection and the quality is not as good. As far as I recall, though, Asiatic lilies need to be planted in the spring, so you might want to wait to order them in Jan. or Feb.

Here's a link to a good online source from our Green Pages

Depending on your funds Gilbert H. Wild are pretty cheap and they package them with 3 in the package vs $$$ per bulb.

When I was a beginner and just wanted bulbs nothing new and exciting I used them. I still buy the ones I use in my pots on the patio from them.

Donna, welcome to ATP! Welcome!

There are many places to buy asiatic lilies. I got some from my mom's yard earlier this season and I'm considering getting more from somewhere online next year, assuming there is space in and amongst my daylilies out front, but I'm concerned about something I read on here recently about asiatic lilies--particularly the pink ones--carrying a virus that can get into the soil and spread to other plants.

Since we already have a few lilyheads in this thread, maybe they could say whether or not that's really much of a concern? ( @dyzzypyxxy , @goldfinch4 , @Cinta )

I have had a few get the virus, but dig them up immediately and it did not spread to other plants.

Virus isn't in the soil, only in plant tissue Smiling
Just make sure every root and every scale of the lily is removed and you should be okay.
