'Lilium maritimum'
(Golden-Orange Form)

Item# ls334
Archive Item
(Species / Wild Lily)
Rare in nature and even rarer in cultivation because of its near impossible requirements, this lily is native to the coastal areas of Northern California. Found sometimes just above the high tide mark, it grows in sandstone soils that usually flood sometime during the year. The pendant, bell shaped flowers are orange-red in color, blending to yellow and finally green at the top.
