'Lilium iridollae'
(Soft Yellow Form)

(Species / Wild Lily)
Native to the peaty meadows of southern Alabama and north-western Florida, where it is found in its yellow coloration, this is a very difficult lily to cultivate but still easier than Lilium catesbaei . The striking, yellow flowers are pendant in form and are heavily spotted. Further south and into the Florida Panhandle, they are more of a golden yellow color.

We offered Lilium iridollae in the past as bulblets from tissue culture, giving the greatest chance of success but took it out of propagation as the failure rate by customers was in excess of 80%. This species should be attempted by only the most experienced and patient of gardeners.
