Lilium grayi

I germinate L. grayi (when I can get it!) the same way I do L. canadense
and their intergrade, L. x pseudograyi - two to three months moist
stratification at room temperature followed by two or three months cold
stratification in the fridge.

I try to sow Lilium and Fritillaria when the seeds would be ripe, no matter
when I get them, so that leaf emergence happens right when they'd be coming
up in the wild. If I need to prolong stratification to delay germination, I
give the seeds more time warm moist stratifying.
