Lily Bulb Description

Lily Bulb - 'L. parvum'
An alpine native of the Sierra Nevada and Oregon Cascades, the small, semi-erect flowers of Lilium parvum can be found in yellow, orange, or red depending on elevation. Provided it receives a well drained garden site, with damp, sandy soils, it will grow quite well. A very similar flower found in ditches in the Eldorado National Forest carries a unique pink coloration. Debate goes on as to its status of being a true species or a hybrid between Lilium parvum and Lilium kelloggii .
