Lily, Panther (Lilium pardalinum), packet of 50 seeds
Family: Lily (Liliaceae)
Hardy to Zones 5 to 9
(Leopard Lily) Herbaceous perennial native to Coastal California and Oregon. Multiple turk’s-cap-like lilies with prominent exserted chocolate stamens borne on multistemmed plants that soar to 7 feet tall. Traditional usage (Native American): food, poultices, cough remedies. Panther lily prefers moist but well-drained, acidic, humusy soils and part shade. 2-phase germinator makes roots the first year and aerial parts the second year. A great choice for shady, moist, conifer-derived soils. Suggest planting in gallon pots and keeping in a shaded and moist situation, out of the way, as it is a long wait. After spending one growing season as small aerial seedlings in the pot, then separate in the fall and plant out the bulbs in a shady and moist, protected spot. The following spring the plants will come up vigorously and usually flower that year.
