Gifting Orange Ditch Lilies
September 17, 2007
I decided to get rid of the orange ditch lilies in my flower beds a couple of weekends ago. I posted on Plantcycle and Freecycle that I was re-arranging my flower beds and would have 3-4 large clumps of this spreading lily to offer to anyone who wanted to come and pick them up. I had a few replies and chose the person who lived the closest (and who would more than likely show up) so that I could supervise their dig.
The woman I gifted them to came with her son who did most of the digging.
Here’s how it all looked in the back of her car:
I’m really glad they are gone – some had started to spread on the lawn. Of course I’ll probably be digging out more as time goes on as these types of day lilies are so persistent and hard to get rid of. At least the bulk of them are gone and I can replace them with something more polite and docile.
