Lilium canadense

 

Regarded by many as one of the most beautiful off all species, delicate lantern shaped flowers about 6 Cm's in diameter, it's tall elegant stems grow about 1 metre tall and emerge from a scaly rhizome, these are very brittle and need careful handling, to do well the rhizomes need planting in a well drained acidic soil, they must never dry out but equally must not get waterlogged, a real challenge to grow, flowers from late June onwards, rhizome size 12 cm +.

Lilium parryi

 

The 'Lemon Liy' from California, one of the most lovely of all species Lilies, from the U.S.A. Produces beautiful deep yellow flowers from about early July onwards, each of which have a lovely allmost honey like perfume. Not easy to grow, likes a well drained moist acidic soil, hates getting dry as much as it hates getting waterlogged, a real challenge, but worth if only for the perfume. In it's natural habitat it can often be seen growing on the side of streams, where it's long roots reach right down into the moist soil and the bulbs grow in the dryer soil above.
