Query about potted rose lily care

I was given potted rose lilies - 3 stalks in the pot. The blooms have now faded. As it is almost November in South Australia, what do I do with them for summer?

You can put your pot on the patio or balcony for the summer or you can plant them in the ground. Roselilies are the oriental type lily so care for them the same way. However, true roselilies do not have a scent or pollen.

You can cut off the bloom, but leave the foliage stalks till the leaves wither and turn brown. That is how the bulb is renourished.
