LILIUM PARDALINUM ssp SHASTENSE
This is a very robust lily forming a clump of erect stems bearing whorled leaves and several nodding, dark-spotted, orange-red flowers, shading to yellow at the centre. It flowers in summertime and is native to Oregon and California, where it usually grows in damp areas.
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.
