The first ones are Asiatic hybrids, the earliest to bloom, and also the easiest to grow. Of course, many of you grow them in your gardens and enjoy them. My favorite are Tiger lilies (L. tigrinum). All hybrid tiger lilies have spotted, curved petals and prominent stamens.
I grow them in some garden spots, in sunshine and shadow with other plants for company. You can see here whites, yellows, oranges, reds and dark reds. Their flowers generally are not scented.
As the name "Daylily" suggests, individual Daylily blossoms last only a day. I liked that a plant produces new flowering stems over some weeks, from midseason to late summer and early fall. I have very simple daylilies those I inherited with my summer cottage and do not know what variety is but I love the color.
To some people a real lily is a trumpet specie. I love them as well because they like no other plants are magnificent, raising its huge waxy flowers full of fragrance!
I'm sure trumpet hybrids are very easy to grow. Mine are of the old type Regal lilies colored of white and bright gold having brown and red stamens. Some of my trumpets are like bells, others flare widely in a shallow bowl shape.
What is your experience growing lily? What is your favorite specie?
