I have grown several other orienpets and they all have such sturdy stems that they would serve as delphinium supports equally well. Other types of lilies that I have grown would not be such good supports. To adequately support one clump of delphiniums I would estimate that you would need at least 6 lilies to provide adequate support. That should be no problem as these orienpets can be had relatively inexpensively. For example, see Brent and Becky's Bulbs where you can get 25 of these for a little over 60 dollars.
