Lilium michiganense is another of the wonderful US native lilies that is rarely available to home gardeners. Native to moist slopes and low woods from Minnesota south to Alabama, Lilium michiganense is a vigorous and easy-to-grow lily that spreads nicely by underground rhizomes. In spring, the 6' tall stems of whorled leaves shoot skyward. In June/July, the stems are topped with one or two bright orange-red, pendent flowers with a yellow central pattern and orange-brown spots near the center. As the bulbs grow larger, each stalk may produce up to five flowers. All of our Lilium michiganense are nursery-propagated via division.
