These are so easy to grow and propagate. They are also nice to plant near windows to watch hummingbirds They make lovely cut flowers too.
The leaves can be used to wrap things for grilling and the bulbs were used by northwestern Indians as a potato substitute as well as made into a flour. They are also used as a food in Chinese cuisine.
Another use for these lillies is to plant in wetlands to remove pollutants from the water. Lift the bulbs after a killing frost and store in a cool place till spring that does not freeze.
Seed is also available but it will take a few years before the plants have large bulbs. 3 large bulbs are in a box/order. Plant in containers or about one ft apart.
All of our seed offerings were grown here. I have been a seed savers for 40 years. Our seeds are packaged in original art packets, hand folded with 100% recycled paper. Instructions for growing are not on the packs but are on the listing under the seed template. Books on gardening as well as many catalogs carry general information on growing seeds. I am available by e-mail or phone to answer any growing questions as well. You won't find that service from many sources of seeds. The shipping on our orders also includes the processing and handling charges which is also less or equal to most seed companies. I hand pack each order and drive from the farm to the post office to ship your order.I only ship in the USA.
