Talking about Lily (Lilium 'Urandi'), Joy wrote:

I grow my lilies in containers. Last fall I potted my Urandi into a larger container because it had outgrown the container it was in. It was so heavy that I left it in the area I potted it in. It's now in a full-sun area, whereas it previously had shade during the hottest part of the day. What I've discovered is that it's more of a white lily in full sun. It was much prettier, with more color, when it was in part-shade. The color reminds me of opals. I think I'll move it back to the part-shade area. This is a very tall lily. I didn't measure, but it has to be 7 ft or taller, with many, many blooms starting low on the plant and going up to the top. One of the longest-blooming lilies I've grown. Impressive!

Talking about Lily (Lilium 'Cancun'), Joy wrote:

I tried growing Cancun two separate times from two different sources. Both times, by the second year, the lily was affected by the color-breaking virus and I had to dispose of the entire plant to keep it from spreading to my other lilies. I don't know whether I just had bad luck with this one or if this is common with this cultivar, but I won't be trying it again.

I received a bulb from my neighbor, Joe. i am looking forward to seeing it bloom next year.

I already grow Orienopet lilies Robina and Nymph. It will be in good company.

Talking about Lily (Lilium auratum var. platyphyllum), Marilyn wrote:

I love this lily and it is my favorite of the ones I've grown over the years!

I had wanted this particular variety, which I knew as Gold Band, for many years because it is very beautiful. More than a decade ago I had ordered several bulbs of this variety from a company that sold lilies, as well as other perennials and bulbs, but they didn't bloom as the correct variety, to my disappointment. I'd had a lot of disappointments of lilies not sprouting over the years, so I didn't plant any more after that. I think it was because the critters found the bulbs and ate them or because of the soil conditions I gave them.

One day in 2013, I saw a pic on ATP of Lilium auratum var. platyphyllum that @chelle had posted and I was in love. I just had to have these beauties growing and blooming in my yard. I ordered three bulbs from Old House Gardens - Heirloom Bulbs the fall of 2013, and I was beyond ecstatic the spring of 2014, as I finally got the beautiful blooms in my garden! This year, they're even better, larger and taller. I'm pretty sure that an additional stem sprouted up!

When I planted them, I amended the soil to their liking and added crushed oyster shells to the planting hole to deter the critters from getting these treasures.
