Re: self-sowers/orienpet


Re: Sheherazade:  I have 7 and a half (a 3 ft baby) - from the Haley's Comet
label.  Got them in 1999 for $2.25 ea from Van Engelen.  The 7 (I think the
original number of bulbs purchased was 5) are all about 6-7 ft tall.  Each
has 20-22 buds and the opened flowers are about 6 inches across, not
counting the recurved portions.

Judy, I dug up my Lilium henryii that I'd had for about 4 yrs.  It had two
8-9 ft stalks and a couple of babies, so I decided it was time.  It had
divided, so I sold the larger, 37cm bulb on ebay and replanted the smaller
one.  That smaller one has put out 2 stalks this year, about 6-7 ft tall.

I don't think you'd have any problem digging yours this fall so long as you
dug deeply to get under the bulb.
