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!
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 would definitely like to try (waiting to have it flowering in the garden).
Germination: You can find a detailed overview of germinating lilies on the Pacific Bulb Society website. For myself, I sow the seeds in late fall and let the nature do its thing. It can flower in third year from seeds.
For those buying seeds ‘out of season’ – there is a very good method which involves freezing the seeds for 2-3 weeks first – please read more about it on Scottish Rock Garden forum here.
