Lily Bulb Description

Lily Bulb - 'L. parryii'
Considered by many to be the most beautiful of the American species, Lilium parryi calls the mountains of Southern California and Arizona home. The California 'Lemon Lily' is quite difficult in cultivation. The flowers are yellow in color and lightly spotted in brown. Well drained soil and protection from winter rains is a must to be successful, but in nature, there was a colony about 90 miles from Los Angeles growing in a meadow with numerous springs continually spilling water over the base of the plants with no apparant harm. Used by Jan de Graaff at Oregon Bulb Farm, Lilium parryi was instrumental in the development of the 'San Gabriel Strain'.

Inset photo is a hybrid of Lilium parryi showing red throat bred by the late Don Egger.
