I love any kind of lily. This year I wanted to plant a few in a container since we have plans to build a new home. I wanted them to be easy to move to the new location so I decided to place them into a few pots. Every year I buy a few new bulbs and tubers. I can not help it. It is an addiction for me. This year I finally got a really deep purple calla lily. I could not wait to plant it when I got home. I did not even wait on the little guy to finish his day at school to help me.
What I used : a few medium sized pots that I liked the shape and color of
three bags of potting soil
Coffee filters in the bottom of each pot
A light layer of pebbles in the bottom of each pot
3 daylily Dream Legacy roots
3 daylily Calico Jack roots
3 calla lily Schwarzwalder bulbs
3 dahlia Marble Ball tubers
I also try to plant something different every year to add a variety. The only thing that I can not get to live so far is a hydrangea. I have always wanted a huge one in the yard, but they hate me. They never even make it through the summer. Oh well, I am happy everything else always looks amazing.
More shopping for now while I wait for these little guys to make their presence know this summer. I can not decide which climbing rose I really want. Any ideas on your favorite climber? What is your favorite lily?
