The lily is the summer bulb of the year. And we’re planning to give 25 summer-blooming bulbs to one lucky friend of Southwest Gardening Blog.
The winner will receive a bag filled with 25 Oriental lilies in a variety of colors to create a gorgeous rainbow of lily blooms around early August. A bonus? The lilies in this Fragrant Blend mix, courtesy of Bulb.com, add a spicy aroma to your summer garden.
Here’s all you have to do to enter:
- Leave a comment on this post by April 20. Tell us why you would love to add Fragrant Blend to your Southwest Garden, why you love lilies, would love to grow lilies, or anything about bulbs. Learn more about lilies from Bulb.com.

- Not required for the drawing, but feel free to subscribe to our newsletter (and receive a free infographic) or follow us on social media!
If you win (or shop for Oriental lilies), just find a sunny spot you can see from your windows or patio and dig nearly 6 inches deep to plant your Fragrant Blend bulbs on a bed of loosened soil so water drains well. Water right away to get them to take root. The stunning blooms will open after Asiatic lilies are done blooming, for all-season lily delight. The Fragrant Blend bulbs should be hardy in zones 4 through 9.
