Gardeners' Notes:


On Jul 9, 2006, Leehallfae from Seattle, WA wrote:

The Lily Cannes (asiatic) reach about 24 inches in height. They bloom from summer to autumn, and to get the blooms to last longer than usual, plant them under at least partial shade, between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. Daylight Savings Time.

Do very well in containers.

Very fast reproducer. Plant fades rapidly in sun. Does best in semi to light shade. The color is best on the first few days it opens. A short border plant that works well near roses.
