If you want a show stopping native alternative to asiatic lilies, then check out the beautiful Michigan Lily.
The bright orange flowers are speckled with brown spots. Over 3 inches wide, the large buds and flowers hang downwards from a long stem.
Michigan Lilies are found in moist locations, along riparian areas and wetland edges. Be sure to plant your bulbs/plants in a mesic to moist location in part or full sun.
Michigan Lilies are native to northeastern North America. See map below for range.
