With ladybugs managing your lilies' aphid problem, the insecticides can remain on the shelf. Gardeners might easily mistake long-antennaed western spotted cucumber beetles infesting their lilies for spotted green ladybugs; the greenish-yellow critters have 12 spots on their backs. Don't be fooled; ladybugs are red, orange, yellow or brown -- and their short, thick antennae set them apart from the beetles. Cucumber beetles show up in early summer to feast on lily flowers and foliage. In mild-winter Mediterranean climates, they may infiltrate lily beds by the hundreds, laying eggs in the soil that hatch into tiny, green lily-climbing worms.

The cucumber beetles have no natural enemies.

If you want to get send them packing, you'll have to do it yourself. To eliminate cucumber beetles without harming ladybugs or other beneficial insects, stop them before they have a chance to lay eggs. Visit your lilies in the early morning with a pail of soapy water, handpick the lethargic beetles from the plants and drown them. Follow up by trapping the pests in your fading lily blossoms, where they congregate in shelter of the collapsing petals. Late in the evening, snip the old blooms off and again, drop them in soapy water.

Do not wash the rhizomes because the excess moisture could result in rot. Cure the rhizomes by laying them out in a warm, dry place for seven to 14 days. During this process, the skin on the outside of the rhizome will thicken, providing protection over the winter.

Store your calla lily rhizomes in a cool, dry place for the remainder of the winter. The ideal temperature range for storing calla lily rhizomes is 45 to 55 degrees Fahrenheit.

Home Guides Garden Gardening Calla lilies are ornamental plants widely recognized for their large white blooms. My question is: Once the plants have turned brown after many months of blooming do I cut them off at the ground, or what? I see where I am to mulch them, but after they are cut down? JV, Is the soil soggy that you intend to plant it in or does the water lay on the soil? Then the spot may not work and it may be too.

Otherwise it should be fine. Each bulb should be planted separately unless they are tiny. Asiatic lilies are always making new babies and let the tiny bulbs on, but separate the larger ones. After several years, you may need to divide them, since they do reproduce. Once they are blooming as well as they once did, do this. If it is in front of the house, the soil isn't probably the best. I would purchase some good gardening soil to plant them in. If you have any other questions, be sure to ask.

I hope this has helped. I'm new to gardening so I have few questions. I want to plant them in front of my house where it gets at least 8 hrs of sun and I've read that I should plant them in an area with well drained soil. How do I know that it's well drained? My sprinklers turn on once a day for 10 minutes, do you think that'll be too much water?

Also, when I plant them, do I need to separate them or can I just take the whole plant out of the pot and dump the whole plant in the hole? Do I also need to use gardening soil or compost? It's not on a raise bed , just in front of my house with the other bushes. Thank you! Margaret, Dividing is almost you have to do for those beautiful blooms. Fertilizing will get you more blooms though. Thanks for commenting. Barbara, I haven't much of a green thumb, so I was delighted to discover that the Asiatic lilies my brother-in-law planted for us outside have required practically no care over the years.

They just keep coming back with more and more bright orange blooms each year!

After reading your article just now I think it's definitely time to divide the bulbs. I'll let my husband know he's the one with the green thumb. It would help to give them a little fertilizer once in a while. They are easy plants to grow. Your location sounds fine.

Have fun! I will get them in the ground this weekend then!! I would be excited to find an extra bulb in there. Do you think they would do well planted on the south side of my house?? It gets pretty much full sun there, and the only thing that is close to it, is a house next door. Plus I was thinking of maybe planting them closer to the brick foundation of my house. Would that be okay?? I have read that some plants can be kind of picky about things, and not sure if these are one of them.

Also, when I plant them, should I mulch them, or just leave them be?? Sorry I am asking so many questions.

  • Your pictures are so very beautiful and I can't wait until I have them a couple years in the ground happy thoughts and then try to rub the yellow centers together. I'm amazed that's all you have to do in hopes to get a new color. These little flowers seem so pretty and fun, I just hope they turn out to be fairly easy to grow and keep alive!! Yes, I'd get them planted.

    Since they are all different colors, I'd plant them a bit apart and let them spread. You are suppose to divide them every 3 to 5 years, because they do make baby bulbs. The babies will take nutrients from your main plant. You can replant the babies and you will get more lilies. I try to put 3 together to make a statement. Not all 3 bulbs in the same hole, but close together. It is up to you if you want to do that are not since they are different colors. You may find that your pots have more then one bulb in them. I've found 3 in a pot at times. Hello Barbara Kay, I looked up the hacinths, and those are not it.

    I did see some of those for sale though when i picked up the three lillies i got. The three that i got looks exactly like the pictures up there in this post. One is a light pink, one is orange with black spots, and then the other is a yellow with red on the inside of each petals. They look exactly like the lillies in your post here with one stem with green leaves and then a few flowers on that one stem. Not sure if i could take a picture and add it here. They are small, about 6 inches tall give or take.

    I have had them about a week now, and when i went to check them yesterday to see if they need water, lots of petals fell off of them, so im hoping i am not going to kill them. This weather has been a bit crazy here, as last night got down to about 30 and today, is about noon and its pretty cold. Im wondering if before i plant them outside, if i should start taking them outside on my porch to let them adjust and then bring them in at night, or just leave them out for a few days before i plant them as long as it don't get down to 30 again.

    But then for all i know, they might be a little plant that likes the cool weather!! Thank you for the help. It sounds like they may be hyacinths if they are blooming in Zone 5 right now or look up spring bulbs for Zone 5. Look up those and let me know if that is what they are and I'll give you more information. Most flowers that are blooming right now are probably spring bulbs and most do spread. Most gardeners say to plant in groups of three for a good show, so I wouldn't plant them too far apart. You can always divide bulbs in the fall if they are planted too close together.

    Let me know if you find out what they are and I'll give you more information. Hello, i am new to gardening and planting things. I bought a home last fall and found out my home sat empty for so long that people came and dug up all the plants that were in the yard, so i am kind of starting from scratch, and have no clue as to what i am doing. I recently went to cvs and seen these beatuiful plants, and bought 3 of them, i bought one of each color they had, and now i am reading around looking for info on them. Right now, they are on a short stalk with a few flowers and a few tight buds on the stem.

    When i plant them, eventually in a few years will each plant turn into more then just the one main stem, or for the most part will they get a few stems per plant and get the flowers on it?? I think i am kind of confused because i keep reading about bulbs and mine came as already plants, so i am assuming that they were a bulb. I would really like for them to spread out, but from looking at your pretty pictures, i am guessing they don't "bush" out, but mostly will keep to a stem versus turing into a small bush, or rather a clump, Is that right??

    Also, i am in central indiana zone 5 and was thinking of planting them on the south side of my house, kind of close to the house. Do you think that would be okay for them??

    I have read on here that they like mulch, since i will be planting them this weekend april 26th or 27th that i should cover with mulch right away, or should i wait until early fall to add mulch around them?? And they stay in ground all winter correct?? I know i have recently bought some bulbs glads or something that says they need to be pulled up in fall and stored for the winter, i am not sure if i need to do that with these as it didn't really have much info on the tag i got with them, it just said hybred lilly.

    Any and all advice suggestions will get super helpful!! I think these are so pretty and i would LOVE to be able to enjoy them for years to come and just want to make sure they get a decent start. I think i might be over thinking and worring about them, but i don't have a "green thumb" so to say, so i am hoping these will be easy for me to take care of. I am really interested in making my own colors and such as you wrote about in your post here.

    I had no clue that just rubbing the yellow middles together that you can create a different colors. But for me, that will come a few years down the road because right now i am just worried about getting them planted in a good spot and getting them established. You should try them. You'll never be sorry, since they bloom year and years and the bulbs aren't that expensive.

    Thanks for reading. Hello again Barbara Kay! I did enjoy this hub! Beautiful flowers and hostas too! I knew I was going to like you! LOL I am going to pick up some bulbs this week-end. I know a little more about where to plant them now, thanks to you! Voted up, beautiful and sharing! Trish, I haven't ever heard about the lilies being dangerous to cats. I have lots of them planted here and the cat just never went near them and she hung around the garden all the time.
