You won't easily find a more versatile or prettier garden flower than lilies. They come in a multitude of colors, shapes and sizes—some fragrant, others not—in either single- or double-petal forms. Choose from tall varieties that can grace the back of a sunny summer border, or select a dwarfed cultivar that looks fantastic along a winding walkway or garden path. Whichever type of lily bulbs you plant, you'll be blessed with spectacular flowers the following summer, and every year after that. Lilies are notoriously good naturalizers that increase in beauty and bloom as time goes on.
