The wood lily can be variable in height; it is easy to identify by the up-facing hot-orange flowers with purplish-brown spots. It flowers from late June to August when it is frequently visited by hummingbirds and butterflies!
A great addition to the flower border or the woodland garden.
Other uses: Bulbs were used as food and medicine by the Native Americans. Also it is said that the pollen can be dusted on various dishes, something that I will definitely try.
Germination: best sown in the fall, or after cold-moist stratification (2-3 months). It can flower in the second or third year from seeds.
You can find a detailed overview of germinating lilies on the Pacific Bulb Society website.
