My canada lily has begun blooming today and I took some pictures I love this plant although only one of about five survived . It's six feet tall. Sarah
That's gorgeous! Lovely.....
Great looking photos/plants.
Thank you both. I love this lily! it's three years old. Sarah
Wow Sarah! That's so cool! Do you think the one I left in TN is blooming??
I don't know Terry this is the only one that survived. I think the rest were eaten by voles or squirrels or chipmunks. Did yours bloom last summer? Every year I'm scared that it won't return but thankfully it did so far. And I planted them in hardware cloth and permatil volebloc. This one is up near my house wall. So maybe that's why it survived. Sarah
No, it didn't bloom last summer. If I remember, the foliage was there....I want to go back to TN if for nothing else than to go to the native plant sale they have there. I can't find any around here. Bummer...
Terry I'm not sure but I bet there's a place in Illinois that carries it. Sarah
Wow! Mine opened today too (only 2 buds though as it is only 2 years in the ground). Mine is very yellow not this lovely red! I'm envious!
Atahualpa, I had a yellow one also but it didn't survive. I am sure it was eaten.I love both colors I just love your countries lily! and columbine too! Sarah
thank you for the pictures of the canada lily. i just planted one this May. Mine will be yellow; it probably won't
flower this year, and i should move it to the back of the plot- because of its size.
Protect it from herbivores!! Good Luck! Sarah
Sarah, do the little guys like it? Certainly looks like it could be their kind of flower! It's breathtaking!
Yes they do! I would love to get a picture of them at it but they are to fast for me. Sarah
I would really like to have the red ones! Anyone know where to find them?
Hi, I will just share a few tips on LilY Canadense, I have had great luck with this plant and have never done anything to it except give it a shake or 2 of Osmocoat plant food in the early spring. I found it in a meadow near a river and took one very small 16 inch tall plant and transplanted it at my home against the south facing wall of my garage. three years later it is a cluster of about 20 with 3 or 4 of the stems reaching over seven feet tall !! The corm seems to love being buried about 6 inches deep in fairly hard packed gravel mixed with a little loam, approx 75%gravel 20%loam 5%clay. I have them planted on the drip line of the roof overhang so it gets hammered with water every time it rains, It loves it !!
