Lilium canadense is a spring blooming native lily, found all along the eastern side of the USA. At home in bright shade or dappled sun woodlands, this wildflower can reach 3-4 feet tall with flowers around 4 inches across, Fall is the best time to plant the dormant bulbs which are a bit smaller than Asiatic types. The acorn sized bulbs often have a yellowish color and spread by forming runners around the original plant. Seed is also often produced. Later in the season, the entire plant dies down.
