Roberta's 6-piece Quadrupled Flowered Oriental Lily
Roberta's have the best lily bulbs
I have been buying Roberta's lilies for the past 4/5 yrs. Roberta's lilies are the best on the planet. I have 100's of lilies in a huge garden. They grow every single yr and each yr they multiply . They truly are the best... I will always buy my lilies from Roberta's and no place else. The bulbs are always nice big and healthy. I always soak them overnight before planting. Thank you Roberta's for your outstanding lilies . Your Lilies are my favorite !
I bought these last year and only 2 grew. I have been growing oriental lilies for years and loved the colors these would bring to my garden. I was very disapointed. They send them too late for zone 5 also, so they get a late start to begin with. I never do reviews especially with plants because of so many variations in growing. But felt I needed to do this one.
Just starting but it looks promising
I ordered 2 sets and received them well packaged and intact. I did not soak them in advance as some have advised. (I realized that after they had been potted)
It has not even been 2 weeks and already 5 are poking through the soil. I am surprised - pleasantly so - as so many people post about nothing sprouting!
I will post again later - but so far, so good. Really pleased.
Received bulbs today, although one was broken into pieces. Planted them right away, looking forward to watching them grow and multiply.
I bought these last year, they are beautiful. Already coming up this year and I can't wait to see them again.
Only 2 bulbs bloomed! I'm hoping for better showing this season, very pretty and fregrant...GOOD LUCK
no labeling on bulbs.
Preliminary review. Got my bulbs this week. there is no labeling on the bulbs, so you can't do a color design. One bulb was missing, so Roberta's is sending a replacement bulb. I have had success with their lily bulbs (starfire and sumatra), so I will write another review later on the flowering. This week I also got 6 Cottage Farms daylily bulbs and there were 3 labeled bags and 3 white labels you stick in the ground. Roberta's sent only one plastic label.
Healthy Firm Bulbs Received
Planted with blood meal today. Looking forward to seeing them bloom in Texas. Did plant in full sun as I have planted in partial shade before and they reach for sun. Love Roberta's Lily's and probably have 50 plus lily's from them planted in my yard. Throw them in the ground, fertilize once a month and sit back and watch them multiply for years of beauty! Good luck!!
Beware--a lot of $ for nothing!
Ordered these last year...5 sprouted, but none survived--just dead sticks within a couple of months. QVC did refund my money, but these were absolutely a waste of time and money!
Wasting your money
I ordered these last year and only two came up. i called Roberta's and they could not replace them.
I ordered these last year and only one of them came up at all. just leaves no blooms at all.
Only one grew
I only had one bulb to come up but the flower was so spectacular I am so tempted to buy them again and try yet in another different spot. Maybe it was too much sun for them in Texas. Honestly the one flower I thought was worth the price. Just beautiful. I am hoping it will come up again this spring.
I think I will try again. Worth it if you can get them to come up.
