Looking For A Late-Blooming Lily

I was thumbing threw a magazine & saw a picture of a garden that had orange lillies arranged right in front of purple coneflowers. The bright orange color of the lily really brought out the "hint" of burnt orange in the center of the coneflower. I would like to replicate this in my front yard garden but am not sure which lily blooms around the same time as coneflowers.......Any suggestions?

Something of this color? (not that this is a late bloomer just curious if this is the right color)

Hmm... I can't really find anything. I think asiatics would bloom at about the same time as purple coneflower. Maybe a daylily would do, they bloom a little later than asiatics. An orange rebloomer. How about planting orange asiatics and some orange daylilies. Asiatics refuse to rebloom but you might get a daylily to.

try these

i have alot of lillys try not to use day lillys because they bloom late and only for a short time then they are just foilage. i would try asiatic lillys they bloom around the same time if not a little later than cone flowers they get about 2-8 foot tall but you can't beat the colors to choose from hope this helps

I feel betrayed. I love daylilies and foilage isn't that bad. Plant them next to something that blooms when they aren't to ensure color all season. However in the situation yes asiatic lilies are better, i suppose. :roll:

No, I love lilies of all varieties. They are one of my favorites, because they come in every color except black, and blue though some varieties are close and so easy to care for.

But I am getting off subject I suppose.

minnesota_girl, I love all lilies too. I've been planting so many different flowers to attract bees and butterflies to pollinate my edibles that I forget just how much I love my lilies. Then my lilies start to bloom and I ache to see them growing everywhere.

They are. Look at this site they have some pretty ones. Though these guys charge three times as much as the nursery nearby.

I am currently growing stella de oro, nile crane, spacecoast starburst, an orange one that I don't remember the name off, happy returns, little business, and dusty rusty. I have enjoyed all of them.
