'L. harrisianum' (Lilium)
Lily Bulb Description
Also known as Lilium pardalinum var. giganteum, this California native has been offered over the years as 'Sunset Lily' and 'Red Giant'. Found along the Van-Duzen River on the edges of heavy thicket, these scarlet red, and Turk's cap flowers are heavily spotted in their yellow centers. To do well in cultivation, it requires a well drained, humus rich soil and a site where the bulb can be shaded with the flowers raising up to the sun. We thought our cuts, scrapes, and bruises would never heal from tracking this lily along the Van-Duzen. Growing in the gravel river bed, Lilium harrisianum has flowing water covering its bulbs during the rainy season.
