This might be interesting. Two collections of Lilium pardalinum.  The first one we've been growing is a Butte County Calif. ss  for years . Recently a colleague collected some seed of L. p. ssp volmerii, a modest collection we are using for bulb increase and will not be selling for a while. 

Seed of the two collections were late fall planted in adjacent seedbeds in the field and both emerged in second spring. The volmeri seedlings are more robust and a deeper green color. It will be interesting how these plants develop side by side in coming seasons
