OK...who in zone 5 has these and where do you have them planted? Looking for those dead spaces to have a bit of surprise...
Just read where someone planted them near peonies. Peony has such a short flower span then nothing. Sounds like a good companion plant?? Oops, just googled them at plants delight...No wonder I haven't bought them before....a little expensive. Do they multiply?

Yes, they multiply....they will eventually start popping up everywhere, such a delightful surprise...which is why I guess they are also called Surprise Lilies.

They are pricey. I got mine at a plant sale...check local plant sales to see if anyone has thinned theirs out.

Good luck.

Never really looked for them 'cause thought they were a warm weather bulb for the south. Will check around here to see if I can buy any.

Someone on this board, I think, sent me some a few years back when they divided theirs. I think most folks call the "n a k e d ladies" or "surprise lilies" like VE said.
Mine haven't increased or I would send you some!

And what about spider lilies...mine just got finished blooming. Will they survive up there? VE has them too. Posting a link to images....I have the red ones...
