Botanical Name Lilium canadense
Description Lilium canadense is a charmingly beautiful native species often bush hogged down or chemically sprayed by county and state DOT crews and ignorant home owners. This species native to much of the eastern region of the country thrives in damp cool soils, bogs and various other habitats. While the later conditions are ideal it will grow in loamy sand, high organic, or heavy clay based soils as long as it does not dehydrate during Jan.- August. I prefer clay based soils to aid in combating voles. Like other native lilies, this species has gracefully whorled foliage, maturing to 3'high at flowering, but in deep shade may reach to 4-5'high. 3-4" pendulous flowers are produced in the upper portion and hang with slightly recurved petals and sepals on 4-7" pedicles (flower stems). Flower color among botanical varieties range from yellow gold to brick red. Our selection of(Variety editorum) is form the southern most population that is red in color. NOTE: They are highly attractive to the 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.
