The Leopard Lily is native to Southern California. While there are a lot of great new hybrid Lilies out there, sometimes it is nice to add some old fashioned charm to garden beds. These varieties have stood the test of time. Flowers open from midsummer. They are also good for picking. The leaves are deep green.
Species Lilies are easy to grow. Plant the bulbs in full sun in a well drained soil. Water them in and keep them moist in active growth. You don't need to lift the bulbs every year, just leave them in the ground to multiply. Add some slow release fertiliser each season when the foliage appears.
