Lilium michiganense

Common name: Michigan Lily

Native plant

Michigan Lily can mature to 5' in height and has orange to orange-red very showy flowers. Easily grown in full sun to light shade. Best in moist, humusy soils in full sun. Mulch helps keep root zone cool. The large showy flowers appear to be designed to attract hummingbirds and some of the larger flying insects, such as Sphinx moths, hummingbird moths, long-tongued bees, and the larger butterflies. Michigan Lily can be planted in perennial borders or even along ponds and streams. Turtlehead (Chelone glabra) and Joe Pye Weed (Eupatorium maculatum) are our recommendations as companion plants.
