Description

A lovely extremely fragrant native lily with trumpet shaped flowers with strap-like petals that gently reflex. Young blooms begin life an ivory white (dark purple speckles within) then age to a pink to purple. Because the flowers open in succession over the blooming season, so you will see white to pink flowers at the same time. Plants grow to 1-2 meters in height with a 60 cm spread. Grey green somewhat broad-ish leaves are spaced in dense whorls along the lower 2/3 of the stem. Co-evolved with our wacky climate and soils so it will withstand summer drought when established.

How to germinate Lilium washingtonianum seeds:

Hypogeal germination…(seed puts down a small bulb down first with the first leaf showing some time) Soak seed 24 hours and sow 6 mm deep. Give 20C warm stratification for the first 3 months then cold stratify at 4C for another 3 months. Seed should put down a root/bulblet. They’ve also germinated in the fridge within 2 months of their cold stratification cycle without previous warm stratification.
