DESCRIPTION

Lilium pitkinense, Lilium pardalinum ssp. pitkinense, Pitkin Marsh Lily

A very rare plant in the wild, known from only two or three populations in California, in an area around Pitkin March near Sebastopol.

It is very similar to L. pardalinum and some suggest it may be a subspecies of it. It is distinguished from the others of that species by smaller segments, elliptic leaves, red to orange-brown pollen and magenta anthers. It makes a rhizomatous bulb which bears stems 5-6 feet tall. The stems are clothed with loosely whorled leaves. The flowers appear around Early July and are large and showy with reflexed, red petals, sometimes toning to yellow in the center of the petals, and diffusely dotted with purple. The anthers are magenta but yield purple-brown pollen.

Seed is Open pollinated from the field and maybe crossed with L. pardalinum.

Grow like L. pardalinum, ample water at least until it is done blooming, stems should be staked as they are prone to falling over when in bloom. It will grow with shrubs and other plants which can help support the stem.

Zone 7 for sure, maybe hardier.

GERMINATION:

Root and shoot growth is best and occurs within 8 weeks 50F-60F, start in a cool place indoors, or start in fall-winter outside in a protected location for spring emergence.

ALL LILY SEED IS CANDLED TO ENSURE VIABLE EMBRYOS.
