Humboldt Lily, Lilium humboldtii bloomerianum is beautiful lily has large 3-4" red-yellow flowers on 3' spikes. At higher elevations Humboldt Lily; has grown to 6'. This subspecies is native from Northern Santa Barbara County south into San Diego County. Commonly growing in canyons or on north slopes. A very showy and attractive lily, a somewhat drought tolerant lily. The lilies are divided into wetland species and dry land species. This is more of a dryland species. Our experience is it likes garden conditions with part sun. Bambi and her chipmunk friends will eat this one. Extremely beautiful and long-lived The plant can have a hundred flowers on it and be two meters high and one wide, if conditions are to its liking and if you can keep the gophers away. In some gardens the flowers may reach the eves of the house.  Will tolerate clay in it's on a slope, but is a little harder to start in clay soils. (Isn't everything?)
