Most people like lilies. Providing you give the bulbs good drainage they will multiply and flower every year. I have them coming up through low growing plants. Occasionally the lily beetle takes its toll, but providing you spray in time they will survive to flower again next year. The ones you buy inn pots can be put outside when they finish flowering and they will produce bulbs that will flower the following year. Ine problem with the cut flowers is that the pollen stains whatever it comes in contact with. Some florists cut off the pollen sacs before selling them, but I think that this spoils the looks of them. This stand showed a wide variety of lily flowers.
