I have had this in the ground, full sun for two summers and while it grows quite tall with many buds (one bulb has sent up three stems) they never quite make it to open. Maybe one tries and that is it. I know it grows in areas at least as cold as we are, so no clue what is going on. Any ideas?

I received two Miss Lucy bulbs in early 2006 from a famous estate in Virginia, courtesy of a friend there. I planted them both in a large pot right away. In the summer there were two blooms which did not open properly. But wait! This year I have many blooms and they are exquisite. They smell divine, are hard to turn away from and pest free. You will not be disappointed; this lily outshines them all.
I understand nothing needs to be done to overwinter them. Just let them rest where they are.
