Lily sprouts!!! So the lily is my favorite flower and this March was the first time I have ever planted my own flowers. I reviewed several websites on how to plant lilies and read information on what type of soil they like, how deep to plant them, and when they are expected to bloom, but I was never able to find a website that gave any information on how long after planting should I expect to see them sprout from the ground. Well, I planted 10 total. 5 Asiatic lilies in the color “Sunset” and 5 Asiatic lilies in the color “Midnight Mystery”. They were all planted on March 19, 2013. The first sprout came up on or about April 4, 2013 and the tenth sprout came up on April 18, 2013. So their sprout time ranged from about 16-30 days. Both the first and the last sprout were sunset lilies (pictured above). These damn things have become my new obsession, so here is the first in a series of posts on their progress.
