Not sure of soil conditions

Hi, could you tell me which are the best lillies to plant in flower beds in full sun and not fantastic soil. Thanks Caroline

Do you know whether your soil is Acidic or Alkaline and when you say ‘not fantastic soil’, is it free-draining? As long as it isn’t clay soil, then Oriental Trumpets will be fine. OT lilies are happy in any well-drained soil. They can get quite tall though (up to 6′), hence the common name Tree lilies. So if you are looking for something a little shorter and unsure of your soil type then maybe try a Longiflorum Asiatic Lily or a Longiflorum Oriental Lily.
