The fact, however, is that only the plants that belong to a certain genus are actually lilies―genus lilium being one of them―and hence, are referred to as true lilies.
How to Grow Asiatic Lilies?
As these lilies are grown from bulbs, you will have to visit your nearest nursery to get some of them. The staff at the nursery will be in a better position to tell you which species would be ideal for your region. However, you do have the option of buying potted lilies from the nursery and replanting them in your yard―an ideal option if you lack patience.
You will have to dig small homes for each of these bulbs and plant them individually. If the bulbs are small, you should ideally plant them 2 - 4 inches below the surface and if they are large, you should plant them 4 - 6 inches below the surface. Not surprisingly though, planting these species in groups can give your garden a colorful appearance.
Being one of the easy-to-grow species, Asiatic lilies are quite popular among cultivators and thus, you are bound to find them in abundance in regions where they are grown. More importantly, their abundant availability ensures that they are within your reach in terms of money, all year round.
Once you grow them in your garden, you will see hordes of butterflies flocking your garden, which will again add to its beauty.
