Ranging from east Texas to north Fla. north to the mid Atlantic states. It is found on typically hardwood hillsides, but Michaux's Lily will grow almost anywhere as long as it is in a well drained site. A delightful species that will draw attention to gardening friends. Easy to grow, though very slow, but does not reseed well. Matures to 3.5'High x 1'Wide. NOTE: They are highly attractive to long legged goats (deer), rabbits and voles.
