Can anyone answer my question? I have several of these
lilies planted in various location in OH. They green
up in the fall and this is the first year that several
of them have bloomed. They were planted 2 years ago. 
Does it normally take longer for these lilies to
establish themselves and flower or are they just in
bad locations and wil never be the beauties they are
supposed to be? 
They are all in mostly medium clay soil with organics
added. The whole area drains really well. It has been
raining here for days. I planted some things and
watered them in even though it was still soggy and the
water ran through and didn't lay on top so I know that
it is really good drainage here. 
So, what do these things need?
All the other lilies are doing really great.
