Re: potted lilly

Same thing. Let it die down naturaly and feed it a bit while it is doing that. Don't let it totally dry out. Mine have just died bach for the winter and I am just leaving them out there. However I think yr a tad colder in winter (snow??) so put it in a protected area. I would keep it in a pot so you know where it is and the snails don't get it. Found this page that might be helpful.

Re: potted lilly

I doubt it'll be hardy in Boston. http://aggie-horticulture.tamu.edu/p...lily/lily.html

Lilium longifolium likes full sun and lives quite happily in the heat, so it's a feasible (but not popular) yard plant in Florida.
