How often do lilies bloom?


Answer by  sanityrose (2664)

How often your lily blooms depends on it's type. An indoor peace lily, if maintained properly, blooms throughout the year. On average, any lily has new blooms twice a year.

Lilies bloom only once a year. The plants remain green for a long time afterwards, but no more flowers will bloom until the next Spring. The plants are still pretty even without the blooms.

Typically lilies only bloom once a year, as with most bulb flowers. All lilies need an 8 week dormancy period in order to restart their cycles, this can be forced manually, but could also stress the plant out enough to kill it.

Lilies only bloom once. Most varieties bloom in mid to late summer. Each planting may bloom for up to several weeks. Martagon lilies bloom in the spring, however, and daylilies (which are not related) will sometimes bloom throughout the summer.

Lilies, and most other bulbs, bloom once a year for about two to three weeks. After a cold period of at least eight weeks they will re-initiate the flowering cycle.

Depending on the variety, some can bloom 3 times in one season with some lasting 3 weeks at a time. There are early, mid season and late blooming varieties available to keep wonderful color ready in your garden. Do not pinch the blooms, as bulb plants do not bloom more this way.
