(Species / Wild Lily)
Native to Southern California, Lilium ocellatum is often confused with Lilium humboldtii growing further north. L. ocellatum can be found in Santa Barbara County, Ca. 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 viewed in the wild.
