Gardeners' Notes:

I love the colors of this Candy Lily, however in my yard the leaves of all Candy Lilies end up very unsightly by the time they bloom in late July to early August. By the end of blooming they are usually dried up and brown. I still think they are worth growing and perhaps they would do better with a moist soil that never dries out, which I do not have.
