Lilium michiganense
Michigan lily
Lilium michiganense

Common name Michigan lily
Family liliaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z4-8)
Flowers red/orange (summer)
Size 2-5'

Species lily whose speckled orange flowers are attractively recurved. Our plants took forever to reach blooming size from seed (probably about 7 years), so I was delighted to see the first flower rather unexpectedly (I had almost forgotten about them) one morning in late June.

The newly emerged growth is an asset too – this photo from late May

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
