Plant of the Week: Lilium philadelphicum

Plant of the Week! A stunning forb whose deep orange flowers can be seen from a mile away, Lilium philadelphicum, Wood Lily, is a beautiful addition to a prairie garden. Wood lilies have the largest range of any native lily in North America, covering much of the US and Canada. There are two subspecies, L. philadelphicum philadelphicum is found in the east, and L. philadelphicum andinum tends to be found in the west. Hummingbirds and insect pollinators are attracted to this plant; unfortunately, so are grazing mammals! If you would like this beautiful plant in your garden, they prefer at least partial sun and well drained soil. And always remember to get your native plants from a reputable source!
