    Default lilys?

    This may seem like a stupid question but I have just started and would like to know, are lilys okay to plant around my bees? Does anyone know how they like them?

    They won't hurt a thing, but the bees will likely ignore them. They cannot reach the nectar in DayLilies, and I've not seen them on Asiatic or Hybrids. Certainly won't hurt them any even if they don't collect nectar or pollen though.

    I agree with psfred but would add that my bees seem to like the pollen from Tiger lilies and Crinums.Tiger lilies produce LOTS of pollen.
