Planting and care
After a good rain, find a spot that is the first to dry out. Water trapped beneath the scales may rot the bulb, so a well-drained site is essential. Also, select a site that gets full sun. For dependable blooms, lilies need six to eight hours of direct sunlight a day. If itâ€™s too shady, the stems will attempt to lean towards the sun or get spindly and fall over.
