The Crinite Mariposa Lily

Calochortus coxii
Welcome to one of the rarest mariposa's you are likely to ever see. Hailing from one 30 mile long ridge complex in southern Oregon near Myrtle Creek and Roseburg. It grows there and only there. A serpentine dweller it has been suggested that adding epsom salt will help satisfy it's insatiable craving for large amounts of Magnesium. Although I haven't tried this and mine has grown and bloomed.

I'm going to start harvesting in the next few weeks, so the catalog should be out a little bit earlier this year than the previous. Just a reminder if you didn't get the catalog as an email attachement and would like to send me your address soon. I will post the list up here the same day it goes out.

Enjoying the weather as summer has finally come to the Willamette Valley.

Cheers,
Mark
