Lily Bulb Description
Found growing in southern Virgina, North and South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, and Northern Florida and known as ‘The Carolina Lily’, L michauxii likes a well drained, dryer ground. It has proven difficult to keep in our Pacific Northwest climate. Unusual for a species in that it is a stem rooter and insists on a lime-free growing medium. It has a stoloniferous bulb and stems usually top out at about 3 feet. Friends in the deep south say “it is a weed” but L. michauxii has proven to be a challenge for us.
