Washington Lily
Lilium washingtonianum
  
About Washington Lily (Lilium washingtonianum) 4 Nurseries Carry This Plant Lilium washingtonianum is a ]] native to the Cascade Range and Sierra Nevada of western North America. It is also known as the ashington Lily,' Shasta Lily, or Mt. Hood Lily. It is named after Martha Washington and not the state of Washington; in fact, as the northern range of the plant is near Mount Hood in Oregon, it does not naturally occur in the state of Washington. Its range is limited to the states of California and Oregon. It grows up to 2 meter tall, and bears large fragrant white or pinkish flowers that are often decorated with purplish spots. The petals are 6 to 9 centimeter long and not strongly reflexed. It is typically found in chaparral, open woods, recently burned areas, or revegetating clearcuts.

Propagation
Propagation?
For propagating by seed: Sow outdoors in summer for germination the following spring, or 3-6 mos. warm then 2-3 mos. cold stratification. Seeds may also give good germination by spring if sown outdoors in early fall. For forcing slightly green or fresh seeds: 6-8 wks. warm (70°F) stratification or until the majority of seeds have formed bulblets; then 4-6 wks. cold (about 35°FJ stratification; sow, and at 55 to 60°F leaves should be produced in 4-6 wks. (De Graaff 1951).
