Washington Lily (Lilium washingtonium)


I’m very excited to be offering this splendid native lily. The Washington Lily does not occur in Washington, as many assume, but was named rather for Martha Washington. It occurs in Oregon and California. The species produces an abundance of white, trumpet shaped flowers, sometimes violet tinted on the inside and with exquisite purple spots. These are highly fragrant. Grows on dry slopes and in open forests at higher elevation. Prefers full to partial sun, and well draining soil. Sow in fall for cold stratification or refrigerate in moist medium for spring sowing.
