Western American Species

The lilies occurring in western North America fall into two broad groups – the wetland species which are, in the main, easy in cultivation and the drylanders which are more difficult.

The wetland species, such as L. pardalinum (above) and L. occidentale (below) grow from unusual mat-like rhizomatous bulbs.

The dryland plants like L. kelloggii (below) have more conventional ones.
