Why should I spend a lot of money on an annual?
We pay as much or even more for a cut flower arrangement that last only a week, theses lilies will last all summer. Not to menchon you will never find a flower arrangement that has as much color and fragrance as tropical lilies. They range from colors that are bright pink, white, Lavenders, blues, and even changeables(Green Smoke).
Once the water temp reaches 70 degree's they will come out of the green house. They will start blooming in mid June and continue thru the autumn months or until they are iced out in Nov. even Dec. Keep them fertilized and they will have so many blossoms you won't ever want to by a flower arrangement again. Fertilize them every 4-6 weeks with a Pondtab. Same as the Hardy Lilies.
There are some varieites that will only blossom at night and if your lucky a dark overcast day. These are great for the working family, because they will be able to enjoy them when they got home. Unlike the regular day bloomers that would be closed. They are the brightest of pinks and whites( Red Night shown above is a night bloomer). They will usually open around 8:00p.m or once the sun goes down and close around 10:00a.m. They are very unique.
Can they be overwintered?
Yes, you can keep them over winter but it's very difficult and requires experience.
