"...just wanted you to have the pictures... [this photo was] taken this year. Had nothing in back of house except old wood fern [three years ago]."
Sincerely, Gertude Fassett
Photo shows Asiatic lilies in a mixed planting which include Astilbes (the fluffy pink & red blooms to the right). Astilbes require much more summer time water than lily bulbs, so if together in the same bed, use a soaker hose to add supplemental water only to the Astilbe or other "thirsty" plants.
Wild Lily bulbs making up the genus Lilium belong to the family Liliaceae comprising of approximately 200 genera made up of approximately 2,000 lily species. There are in the neighborhood of 110 to 120 Lilium species depending on whose classification you reference. For the full article, click Knowledge Base
