luteus 'Golden Orb'
Calochortus luteus 'Golden Orb' - A
view of the lovely C. luteus
'Golden Orb', growing in my
northern Massachusetts. For bulbs requiring some summer dryness, I grow
them at the
base of shrubs and small trees, which seems to work well. The stems are
tall, to 30" (75 cm),
topped with many buds and startling bowl-shaped yellow flowers, speckled
brown within. The
individual blooms last a good long time, thus are useful for bright color
in late June through July.
