Hi, Ron & Marina Moodycliffe 
>Where does it actually originate from, EG, State. 

	Ron, not sure if you refer to L. canadense, or just var. immaculatum?
According to McRae, Lilies P119, "L canadense occurs from 35 degrees to 50
degrees north latitude, or roughly North Carolina USA to southern Quebec 
and Ontario Canada."
  Not sure how far west it extends, but to Michigan at least.
	"Var immaculatum Jenkinson (1932) has pure cadmium yellow flowers 
without spots; an entire series of forms was collected and grown by Mary 
Henry of Pennsylvania."
	Mary Henry collected all over, not just Pennsylvania.  Most likely
var immaculatum occurs spread throughout the range of L. canadense.
I can't remember ever seeing a range for var immaculatum.
