Lilly
August 15, 2019

The large, showy blooms of lilies add colorful elegance to the early to midsummer yard and garden. Grown from bulbs, lilies are perennial flowers that will return year after year and require minimal care, provided they are planted in the right place. Horticulturists with ISU Extension and Outreach answer questions about planting lilies. To have more questions answered contact Hortline at hortline@iastate.edu or 515-294-3108.
