Wearing some of the brightest petals in the flower kingdom and some of the most potent perfumes, lilies spill out their charms from early summer to early fall. To stage a lily show all summer, grow some of each type, including Asiatic, the enticingly fragrant Oriental and longiflora hybrids, and some of the species lilies in special situations such as under trees or in rock gardens.
Lilies will naturalize and spread freely in light, fertile soils. They require good drainage to flourish. On the East Coast, bright red lily beetles are becoming a problem. Treat the soil around the plants to control larvae, or pick the adult beetles off blooms to prevent damaged petals.
