Description

Lilium occidentale Purdy 1897

Origin:
California, Oregon; upon fresh grassy areas, partly in full-sun

Laboratory comment:
Lilium occidentale takes some time to germinate and to mature to a seedling of considerable size resisting the distress of the tissue-culture.

Lilium occidentale “Daniel Paul Gaut” # 2 RHS ´02.17 we propably cloned in a too early seedlings´ state. It proves to fight hard towards dying off and is now – after several replates with some alterations of the medium-recipes – slowly recovering and getting up.
