mmmm another lovely colour, asiatic lilies like this one are not common in the UK, our are usually bog standard orange or yellow. i have quite a few different varies of oriental lilies in my garden as they seem to withstand the red lily beetle better - do you get the red lily beetle in the States they are a royal pain in the rear end! lol no sprays seem to touch them.

I think lilies do well in most of the U.S. They are very plentiful in the South where I am. We grow all kinds here, but I only have Asiatics and Orientals. I am not familiar with the red lily beetle so that must be a critter not well suited here (thankfully!). I used to have a problem with squirrels eating the bulbs, but I've finally learned to cover all my bulbs with chicken wire and about 2" mulch to keep them from digging them up.
