Posted on

Hi, this is Yolanda Vanveen, and in this segment,we're going to learn all about how to take care of or how to grow an easter lily.

Well,you get the easter lilies at easter time, and they're in beautiful bloom.

And then whenthey die, you think that you've killed it so you just throw it away.

But that's theworst thing you can do because you have a lily in that container, and you can plantit out in your garden and it'll bloom every summer faithfully, and it'll multiply so youget more and more blooms.

An easter lily is just a lily bulb, and it's a trumpet lily,so they get really tall with waxy flowers that are very fragrant.

So they're reallyeasy to grow.

They're just like garlic.

You just plant them about three inches deep insun or part shade, and I like to grow them in triangles three inches apart, just likethey are in the containers.

When you get them at easter a lot of times, there'll be threein a pot, and even if there's one, just put one out as soon as it's done blooming.

Theeaster lily will probably not bloom that summer if it bloomed at easter time, but faithfully,the next year in the next summer, they will bloom, and they'll come back year after year.

They're a beautiful, beautiful white regal trumpet lily.

They're just a beautiful additionto your garden.

They can get eight feet tall over time.

They're very fragrant.

They multiply.

And never, ever throw away any plants you receive as a gift.

Throw them in your gardenand you might be surprised.

They might make a great perennial flower.
