    I've not grown these before, but I am tempted, any advice on how sharp the drainage needs to be. I have a dry, and I mean dry, sunny bank. Rosemary thrives there as do other sun/dry loving perennials. If it's too dry I'll go for pots, but I was looking for something tall and fragrant as it's right by the back door.

    Gorgeous Bill.  Do you have to stake them?  Or are they tied to the fence perhaps.

    I find they like Acidic Soil and good moisture retention Dave. They are perfect in large containers. Ive been successful using this method for years

    Some Ive had for years below

    Forester2 the tree lillies don't need staking , they have very strong stems.

  • Forester like Mark says the stems are like tree trunks,no need for staking. The blooms are very large.
