I recently transplanted a bunch of my Asiatic Lilies. This photo shows two of the bulbs I transplanted. The large one is maybe 2 or 3 years old. The small one is a shoot from this one as well. Lilies spread like weeds and need thinning out about every other year or they grow in clumps and they look better in single lines I feel. Just wanted to share what the bulbs look like fully grown and just starting out. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

That really is quiet a difference. I did not realize that the bulbs were that small to begin with. I think it is great that you are making your yard look good with flowers and planting all sorts of stuff for food.

Yes, the mother bulb sends out a shoot then it turns into a bulb then it grows larger each year sending out it's own shoots. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

I have seen a lot of them growing wild in the country all clustered together. I think they are pretty no matter how they are lined out. hahaha But with yours in single lines like that then we all know they are being very well taken care of with much love and care.

But if left that way they tend to choke each other out, killing them. So that's why I had to thin mine out. I want them forever. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

Yesterday I thinned all my lilies out also. They are just sprouting up again this year and boy they are everywhere. You are right saying they are like weeds. I even have some growing out of a pot, and I don't know how they got there. I love then in single lines also. My lilies will be out in July and I will take some pictures to show you. I have orange ones.

Lillies are so pretty - the differences in the bulbs is neat. Do you dig them up and store them in the winter or do you leave them in the ground ?
