Gardeners' Notes:

Positive Corgi_Lily On Jun 16, 2006, Corgi_Lily from Lowell, MI wrote:

Starts blooming in early June for me here in Zone 5. Goes on for about a month- due to the different ages of the bulbs. The younger ones bloom a tad bit later. 4 or 5 bulbs put in 5 years ago are now 30+. The deep orange color stays vibrant throughout blooming. I have it in screaming hot, south facing sun all day. I no longer water that perennial border so they are on their own and do fine. It can rain 6 inches in a week or not for a month, so they are adaptable. Mine get just over 2 feet tall at maturity. I have not used them as cut flowers yet- worried that I would not leave enough stem to regenerate the bulb, but with them propagating so fast, I may just start.
