A few of these lilies were in the garden when I moved to the house, but I haven’t found the right place for them.
These lilies are good natured and never complain about the semi-shade.
The plants are so easy care, I rarely even water them. Even though I concealed the lilies around the narrow east side of the house, fighting it out with the raspberries, they bloom with vigour. The raspberries have the impression that they have full rights to this area. I’ve got to tie back the canes, not only to get them out of the lily faces, but to get access to harvest the fruit later this month.
I’ve tried these plants in different areas around my garden, but they never look right. The lilies tolerate the semi-shade, withstand a dry site, and put up with the raspberry thugs, yet I don’t appreciate them enough. I should admire them more for their agreeable nature. Have you ever had a perennial that you’re not sure where to place, yet you’re not ready to let go?
