can the easter lily be replanted from the pot to the ground outside?

Yes, they can be replanted outside & will rebloom next year.

The Easter Lily is a true lily, of the genus Lilium, it is never dormant &should be treated as a living perennial plant.

You can plant after all danger of frost is past. Look for a sunny spot that drains well. They need at least a half a day of sunshine. Lilies love full sun, as long as the bulbs are deep enough to keep cool when temperatures get high. A medium sandy loam soil with a reasonable amount of humus & organic matter is ideal. Peat moss can also be added. Heavy soils can be lightened with course sand and peat moss. Plant it the same depth it was in the pot.Thoroughly water your bulbs in after planting, so the soil settles around the bulb to prevent any air pockets. Add a 2-inch layer of organic mulch. Make sure your plant has air circulation and space so that the leaves can dry out easily after rain so they won’t be bothered by fungus.

When the original leaves and stem start to brown, cut the plant down to a healthy, green leaf. New growth should soon emerge from the base of the plant. Let the plant grow foliage the first year.The new growth will turn yellow in the fall and the lily plant can then be cut back to soil level. Top dress the soil with bulb fertilizer or blood meal. Work into surrounding soil, making sure not to disturb the lilies roots. Apply a few more inches of mulch to insulate the plant through the winter.

Yes! just be sure to plant it as deep as it is in the pot. Put it in a sunny location, and keep it moist. You won’t get flowers out of it again until next spring.

It depends on where you live. They are generally hardy in zones 7 through 9. If you live in a very warm or very cool area they may not survive.

Each time the lily blooms you want to cut the flower off when that flower is done blooming. When the whole plant is done all you have left is a stem what you want to do is let the stem start turning brown and then plant it in you flower bed. I have done this the last three years and after I have planted it, it has always rebloomed again in August and they have continued to come up regularly the last 3 years in the flower bed. I think they are a pretty easy plant to grow considering most people just throw them away after they are done blooming (how sad when then can continue to get them to flower outside)

Yes, you can plant the lily as soon as the blooms are gone, and weather warmer. It should bloom again in July/August. I replant mine all the time. Place in a sunny area, they require very little care once planted, except some water.
