Botanical Name Lilium superbum
Description This particular selection I rescued not knowing what it's flowers form was as so often with rescues. On a visit to a development in Fulton, co. Ga. I was walking the construction site and stepped into the wooded area slated to be cleared and found a few Lilium superbums. I transplanted them and brought them to their new safe home. Since they do not transplant well and go dormant at first disturbance I had to wait until the following season to see their flowers. That is when I was cheerfully surprised and discovered I had saved a jewel. It is heavily spotted with large maroon spots reaching more than half the way to the petal and tepals tips. I have given it the only name appropriate 'N3 Georgia Jaguar'. With the heavy spotting it seems a perfect match to honor the now threatened and stunning creature that once upon a time roamed this land. NOTE: They are highly attractive to long legged goats (deer), rabbits and voles. Watch for aphids and at the first sign address them immediately as aphids can spread viruses quickly and kill plants. Excessive over head water is not recommend for native lilies. Organic fertilizers are best.
