Native to Southern California, Lilium ocellatum is often confused with Lilium humboldtii growing further north. The pendant flowers held atop the 6 foot stems of this species are cadmium-orange with red tips and are covered in large, spots. A dry land type, it is quite difficult to cultivate and has never been attempted by us. This is one of those species that is best left to be view in the wild. Photos courtesy of Orrel Ballantyne.
