Lilium pardalinum culture

Hi  Janoz- 

We field grow grow Lilium pardilinum at our nursery for about 10 years although I have recently taken over this project. Seed is started either in flats after stratificaion or by direct seeding into the field then transplanting into production beds. Same basic protocols as L. columbianum. Latest field planted seed without stratification are now emerging nicely after second winter.  Same apparent results for a direct seeding field planting this past fall.  Sandy Loam soil, overhead irrigation. No winter-kill problems, yet, lowest winter temps about 5 degrees F in an unusual cold snap 3 years ago. 

Flats and stratification is new for me, I expect seedlings to emerge this spring can confirm by June. Propagation by bulb scales has proceeded very nicely and will likely replace sowing seed for establshed strains.
