Thanks,

There are so many truely excellent choices. But I have to say if you want big and TALL and fragrant trumpets the best is SILK ROAD. Fabulous, fabulous lily.

Another lily I truly love is RED ALERT. I have a stand of RED ALERT near my fenceline and when they bloom they are just stunning. Blooms face upward and outward.

I also love my speckled Tango lilies, there are a few different colors that one can get.

If you want short, try TRIDEX. Red lilies only about 18 inches tall.

I was bad and didn't take a lot of pictures, but one lily that really surprised me was Kentucky. It was strong stemmed, taller than I expected, and it matched the new vase my daughter gave me. Nicely scented

Miss Feya was very nice, but only a first year. Seemed to be a good performer.

In my granddaughters new cutting garden, the group of lilies in the first row on the right were her favorite, Eyeliner. Again they were vigorous, held up well, and had a lovely fragrance.

And then a whole bunch of Buggy's lilies and ones from The Lily Garden that I didn't get pictures of. My Ice Caves was just gorgeous.

Oh, I must buy Kentucky!!! Haven't seen that one locally. Love all the good info.

I would like to get a few for patio planters that you can move around. Are they a separate type or just look for the height?

The top 5 Lilies in my garden are not necessarily the ones that will multiply rapidly. LA lilies tend to multiply faster than most (almost all of them) they are also the most susceptible to the lily virus. Asiatic lilies also tend to multiply more rapidly. The Tiny Series (Tiny Sensation, Tiny Nanny, etc. are very short but multiply rapidly. The bulbs don't get very big before multiplying. One year I had a Tiny Nanny that was one and by the end of the season was 10, and all bloomed the following year.

1)Silk Road
2)Anastasia
3)White Henry
4)Miss Feya
5)Leslie Woodriff

There are so many. I guess I would just go with what is beautiful to you and go with that. In KY you should do well with most all of them, though I would keep all orientals out of the hottest day's sun, they will perform better for you.

I am ready for spring but it it still much too early for lilies to show up poking out of the ground here.
