They come in almost every color of the rainbow and bloom early Spring and sometimes into July, and they grow very well in Zones 3 to 10. Asians or Asiatic lilies are the easiest for the beginner, multiply fast, and come in a wide range of colors — white, yellow, orange, red, pink and all shades and color combinations, except blue. Flowers are mostly up-facing except for a few smaller garden gems carrying outfacing blooms; all will be exciting when their new buds open. Asian or Asiatic lilies multiply rapidly, bloom for a long time, are not fragrant. Although generally unscented, a light scent sometimes can be detected during a warm day with little or no wind.
