Mine come back& sometimes they'll set bulbils to plant out as well.




I will age ungracefully until I become an old woman in a small garden..doing whatever the Hell I want!

Yes, I have had good luck planting them out in the garden & letting the top of the plant die off & digging the bulb up in the fall taking it in the house & putting it in a flower pot & walla there are beautiful lilies blooming in mid-winter.

Here's my peach colored one.

It's 2nd year.My white has buds but will be at least another a week.I removed the bulbils last year and they are in my tractor tire that is just lilies of all types(my 100 days of bloom failure)Maybe some of them are the ones with buds....we'll see.My MIL didn't plant her's out she keept in house and the bulbils sprouted& she has since planted it out,but its not ready to bloom it's alot of foliage.I looked at the bulbils in Feb when we planted it.they had already formed a small bulb& we're maybe 12-20 small green leafs clumped together.I missed the clearance this year& then when seen just 2 left....chose a rose instead.

It may depend on the variety. I have one that comes back faithfully every year, and I simply love the scent. I've attempted planting several of them after-season from one local nursery, however, and not a single one came back the next year. I suspect my climate is too cold for some of them.
