I hope you either gave or received an Easter Lily this year. There is about a 95 percent certainty that your plant originated on a narrow and not very long strip of Pacific Coast Highway that joins Oregon and California. I have driven this road a number of times and it is a very beautiful drive, with the majestic Pacific Ocean on one side and coastal redwood forests on the other side. Occasionally one can spot whales or seals frolicking in the surf. The redwood forest is perhaps the most beautiful environment I have even had the pleasure of visiting. The area offers a climate of year-round mild temperatures thanks to a protective bay, deep, rich, alluvial soils, and abundant rainfall - the exact measure of ingredients needed to produce a consistently high quality bulb crop.
