According to McRae's "Lilies," germination is delayed hypogeal. Eddie 
McRae added this kind of information from his own experience, and so I 
think it can be trusted. The species chapter is based on Feldmaier & 
McRae, Lilien (1982), my translation, to which Eddie added paragraphs on 
cultivation and use in hybridization of each species. I worked with him 
on this Timber Press book, which he carefully wrote out in his very 
legible hand.
