|When used in isolation, they will require some staking, as seen in this display in the Sunken Garden.|
A better solution that I have read about for years is to create a dome of sticks that surrounds your plant as it comes up... see here. I did this to help hold up my Madonna lilies last summer and it worked so much better than a single vertical stake with a tie. I am looking forward trying it out again this year.
And no matter how you do it, the earlier you stake, the better!
Photos of our spring work coming up soon!
