This is the 3rd year I have grown these Triplet Lilies. I planted them in a garden that I really didn't get all the bermuda grass eradicated out of, so I am often somewhat abusive in my attempts to get the grass out from around them...yet they continue to multiply and offer more and more blooms each year. I don't think I have lost a one. They don't multiply out of control like a week though, it is just a nice increase each year. I have them planted in full sun. They bloom in May. The foilage doesn't look as good for me as some. It may be because I have them planted in too much heat. However, they still bloom well. They are slight flowers and so my suggestion is to grow them in front of and inbetween grander flowers such as Gladiolus and Iris. With that said, I really like them and plant to buy more in other colors.

I thought this was a weed, growing freely under a large mulberry tree until I pulled one up and saw the bulb. These will multiply easily left in the ground in zone 9 in deep shade. One of the earliest spring surprises.
