Here are some steps to follow for planting Golden Stone lilies:
• Choose a well-draining site: Golden Stone lilies prefer well-draining soil that is slightly acidic, with a pH between 6.0 and 6.5. Make sure the planting site is in a location with full to partial sun exposure.
• Before planting, loosen the soil and mix in some compost or other organic matter to improve drainage and provide nutrients for the plant.
• Dig holes that are 6-8 inches deep and about 12 inches apart to allow the lilies enough space to grow.
• Place the bulbs in the holes with the pointed end facing upward, and cover them with soil.
• After planting, water the lilies thoroughly to settle the soil and remove any air pockets around the bulbs.
• Apply a layer of mulch, such as straw or shredded leaves, around the base of the plants to help retain moisture and control weeds.
• Fertilize them every two to four weeks with a balanced fertilizer.
• Cut off any dead or damaged leaves and flowers to keep the plants looking neat and healthy.
Golden Stone lilies are hardy perennial plants that can survive the winter outdoors. They are hardy in USDA climate zones 3-9.
They prefer well-drained soil and full sun to partial shade. In regions with mild winters, the bulbs can be left in the ground over winter with a layer of mulch to protect them from freezing temperatures.
However, in areas with harsh winters or where the ground freezes solid, it is recommended to dig up the bulbs and store them in a cool, dry place until spring. This will prevent the bulbs from freezing and rotting, ensuring healthy growth and blooming in the following season.
Golden Stone lilies can grow well in both pots and ground, but their growth and performance can vary depending on the specific growing conditions.
When grown in pots, Golden Stone lilies require well-draining soil and adequate moisture to thrive. They should be planted in a container that is at least twice the size of their bulb to allow for proper root development. Potted plants are more convenient to move and protect from extreme weather conditions.
On the other hand, when grown in the ground, Golden Stone lilies prefer rich, well-draining soil that is slightly acidic. They require full sunlight to partial shade and should be planted in a location where they will not be disturbed, as they do not like to be transplanted. Garden-grown plants often bloom better and produce more flowers over time.
Golden Stone lilies can be encouraged to grow back every year by following a few simple steps.
• Plant the bulbs in a location with well-draining soil and full to partial sun exposure.
• Water regularly, but avoid overwatering, which can lead to root rot.
• In the fall, cut back the foliage and remove any dead or damaged leaves.
• Apply a layer of mulch to help insulate the soil and protect the bulbs during the winter.
• Fertilize every two to four weeks with a balanced fertilizer in the blooming season.
With proper care, Golden Stone lilies should grow back every year and produce beautiful blooms.
