Lilies are a beautiful, bursting sign of summer's arrival. However, and most unfortunately, they don't last as long as we would hope. I have some in a large planter, and I planted annuals around them so when they're finished blooming the annuals will continue to give a show throughout the summer.
Last year I planted Pentas in front of the lilies which hid the fact that I cut the stems back on the lilies after they where done their show. The Pentas bloomed till the seasons' finale!
