Recurved orange-red flowers with deep crimson spots open on long, strong stems on this wildflower that inhabits prairie habitats, woods, fens, and at the edge of prairies, in the eastern United States and Canada. The Michigan lily is sometimes confused with the Turk's Cap Lily (Lilium martagon)and also with a naturalized Asian "Tiger lily" Lilium lancifolium.
Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, 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 tray 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.
