One of the most beautiful lilies you can grow, making spreading colonies of large, fragrant, golden flowers with very prominent golden stamens which appear reliably early each spring as the snow melts. In the wild it can be found in subalpine mountain meadows, slopes, and clearings from California to Alberta to New Mexico, but also at low elevations in the Columbia River Gorge. Bulbs are eaten by grizzly bears and also the native American tribal folk, but we do not recommend this..........
Sow seeds at any time, covering them very thinly with compost or grit, keeping the seed pot in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination so be very patient as many species will only germinate in the spring after chilling or freezing in the moist seed pot in the winter. Grow on individual seedlings in small pots until of sufficient size to be potted on or planted out into the open ground.
