Lilies are considered by many to be the most beautiful flower of all. Although Hybrid Lilies can be grown almost anywhere, since they need a moderate amount of winter chilling, they do better in temperate parts of the country. They are also excellent cut flowers and ideal for pots. When cutting, be sure to leave one-third of the stem to ensure the bulbs will survive for years. Asiatic varieties have showy, upright facing blooms with 4-8 buds per stem. Oriental varieties are late flowering and have 6-10 exotic, sweet-scented blooms.
