I love your articles, which delight as well as teach. I was already
dining on blooms, but didn't know about buds.
The "ditch lily" (?) here is pale, two-tone tawny. I have to toil to
keep it far from things like veg garden and rose bushes. The
lily sends out a long underground cable to the rose bush, and the
bush is soon swallowed by dense lily clump.
Sorry I didn't not answer you last week, but I was in Alaska and had little or no internet access, except by IPhone, which didn't always wore either.
Anyway, yes, the old ditch lilies are invasive, the newer hybrids less so, in my experience. but I also don't plant mine near my more delicate plants either, neither the new or the old ones.
Nice to hear from you, and thank you for writing.
