I've forgotten the name, but there is a  program which certifies  
collections held by North American botanic gardens.  A bg can't just  
set itself up as the main collector of a particular plant - there are  
procedures which must be followed, an expert travels to inspect, and  
the collection must be maintained properly.

I wonder if there is a bg designated for North American lilies.
