I notice that OT have a very very thick stalk coming up
the orientals are not near as thick
and some of the others are even thinner then them too

All the flowers put out a good amount of blooms no matter on the thickness of the stock
but just noticed today that there is such a difference out there in the gardens...

many of my lilies are not even up yet
but the south side of the house has plenty of them......

also noticed that the stems on the south side are much more thicker then the same lily planted on the east and west side of the house...
nothing is up on the North side at all yet but a few in one bed and although all OT's in there many of them do not have thick stems either

so wander if matters on the side of the house that lilies are planted or types as well??

I think that if they have to stretch for light the stems will indeed be thinner. I see this on Ortegas planted on the west side of my house vs. one out in the middle of my backyard (southside) garden.
