I purchased an extended-season lily mixture and the possible heights listed are 2' to 5'. The bulbs, though I can't really tell them apart, are two sizes--one larger and one smaller (though not small). Would it be correct to think that the larger bulbs would be the taller lilies, and the smaller ones the shorter ones?

|If they aren't the way you like them, you can always tag the ones you want to move for the fall. When you buy a mixture, it's not always easy to tell. Lilies, even in different classes, will vary in size. |

Oh, that's brilliant! I can totally rearrange them next fall! Thank you.
But for now, I'm trying to decide which ones to put where. I'm planting them against a wall and I want to try to put the taller ones behind the shorter ones so that they all will get enough sun.

|Bulb size doesn't mean taller plants usually. But it could mean a higher bud count. Also remember, most likely their first year they might only get to say 3 foot with two blooms, 2nd year you might get 4 foot with 4 blooms. 3rd year it should be well acclimated if left alone and you will see its potential and what it will do|
