Hello Janoz, While I am in a much more mild weather zone, here in San Diego, I've had fairly good luck with this native of Northern California and Oregon. They are quite tolerant of my clay soil, albeit with good drainage. I must, however, provide additional water as I am in the Southern California coastal desert climate. They will not bloom well for me if I don't provide irrigation every 1-2 weeks before the bloom. After bloom, I cut back H2O to once every 3-4 weeks, until the foliage dies down (Sept-October here.) I grow them on a North-facing hillside, which generally receives little direct sunshine (due to adjacent trees) but did receive bright light. The bloom last Summer was reduced a bit (after 8-9 years undisturbed in the same spot) ... I suspect due to the increased growth and subsequent heavier shade from the adjacent trees. They should probably be lifted and moved to a slightly brighter spot, with some soil ammendment added. http://flickr.com/photos/amarguy/… Ken Blackford San Diego, California USDA zone 10 ________________________________ From: J.

I just like to ask you about Lilium pardalinum culture, what are the do's and don'ts. And i'd like to know what other lilies like to be treated the same way. Thank you!
