    I have a bunch of them from LouAnn, too. They bloom more than any other lily except the Wanvisa.

    Seems like the right place to post this question -

    So I recently went to a new vendor out here in CT. He was adamant that I need only anchor the hardy lily I got from him in my pond under rocks. He is not an advocate for planting them ( or any plant for that matter). He said they will do just fine anchored under rocks in my pond. So, I took him up on and am trying. All the rest of my plants are potted. What is your suggestion? Are all your lilies planted in pots? If so, just with dirt from the yard and some stone to hold it in place?

    I put mine in pots. The stronger lily will take over if left to run wild. And the stronger lily is never the one that blooms the most. I use regular yard dirt, with fertilizer in the bottom of the pot. Potting soil floats and makes a mess. If you have fish, they will treat an unprotected lily like a football.

    The fertilizer is okay for fish? I use the Laguna spikes right now.

    I use a closed pot, fertilizer on the bottom, well covered with dirt and clay. I fill the potted plant with water and let all the bubbles come out. Then I place in pond. I only have Goldie's with my lilies, as my koi are all large. Most are 26 inches to over 3 foot. So they are way too destructive for lilies. My Goldie's are just fine . But my pond is 24 X 24 and not over populated. Except for too many lilies .
