Hi Mary Sue and All:

Lilium pitkinense is often sold as L. pardalinum ssp. giganteum.  It has
been sold locally by the California Native Plant Society under that name. It
is easy to propagate vegetatively since it has an unusual stoloniferous
growth, but because of this - beware!!!  The plants I purchased some years
ago from CNPS were virused, and I have seen others that show signs of virus.
The Berkeley Botanical Garden and the Tilden Park Botanical Garden usually
sells seed every year.
