The Cahaba Lily also know as the Shoals Lily is a short blooming lily usually found in swift moving streams. Blooms only last a day, but they are just fabulous. I have a one rescued from an overgrown area under a cliff apparently surviving from water running off of the cliff. I grow in a area that gets run off from my green house. Another found on a farm in TN is near my garage and it gets water each day when I water my potted plants. I need to move the one by the garage as the bloom was broken in the storm I think by one of the hooligans even though I had protection around it. I collected the seed pods last year at this time and kept them in wet potting soil all winter and just about gave up when they started sprouting a couple of months ago. I should have already put them out in a moist area several weeks ago as I don’t think they have gotten enough light. Hopefully they’ll survive to bloom like the parents. Most of the pictures are from last year. The one by the greenhouse was in its full beauty Thursday, the day of the storm, and most of the blooms were finished by the next day. I was able to get a picture of one of the blooms.
