looking for 'fairy lantern' calochortus bulbs

efd123(6-7)February 3, 2011

I have finally hunted down the name of a plant I have been searching for. Just wondering if anyone happens to know of a good seller of calochortus bulbs specifically the little lantern variety. I understand they are a california native. also called globe lily. Thank you so much for any one who can help! BTW I seem to easily find the "mariposa lily" in alot of bulb sites and catalogs, but am looking for the "lantern" shape in any color, white, pink, yellow etc.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Telos Rare Bulbs (online) has several lanterns or globe types listed, but only alba in stock at $5.50. Unless you're in the western U.S., not the world's easiest bulbs to grow. Need to be dry in the summer when they go dormant; probably need pot culture or raised rock garden for most of us.
