Beadily Queens Cups -Clintonia uniflora
This very desirable rhizomatous lily is not impossible to grow, but difficult. One or two pure white flowers rise above the wide basal leaves in early summer. Each is replaced by a single Prussian-blue berry. Adapted to cool, damp, acid, mossy, well aerated conifer duff and dappled shade. Native from SW British Columbia to California. Our plants are from seeds collected in south-central BC near Kelowna and Clearwater. The ones we ship are at least 2 years old and 2-3 years from flowering. Plant them immediately in a permanent spot. They resent disturbance, but in the right circumstances will form extensive mats. Height 10-20 cm (4-8").
