Can I grow Trumpet lilies in containers?

Yes, you can, but due to their taller stature, allow one gallon of potting soil per bulb and a heavier pot than what is chosen for shorter Asiatic and Oriental Hybrids. Although Trumpet lilies do not usually reach their full height in the first season, stems may still need to be tied to a support if the container is prone to tipping in wind.
