    I think these are on the endangered species list in Canada. I'm sure picking them and exporting the seeds will have some kind of legal implication.. Beautiful flower though..

    google translation Conservation issues http://www.mddep.gouv.qc.ca/biodiversite/especes/lis/index.htm The conditions for growth of the lily of Canada are found only in the humid forests or open areas or semi-shaded moist southern Quebec. Although the disappearance of this species is not understood at this time, several factors contribute to its scarcity: grazing by white-tailed deer, logging, inappropriate practices of forest management and habitat destruction resulting from urban and agricultural development. The entire collection of specimens for horticultural purposes also has a significant pressure on wild populations of the species. Since it takes three to five years to produce flowering plants attractive to the consumer, it is tempting to buy directly from suppliers in the wild. Indeed, greenhouse or any other means of propagation in a controlled environment are more expensive. Designated vulnerable species in Quebec in 2005, the lily of Canada is now protected under the Act respecting threatened or vulnerable species. The prohibitions on the species, however, are limited to the harvest of more than five whole specimens or parts underground in the wild and sale of one of these specimens. According to the NatureServe network, the lily of Canada is at risk in Ontario and Nova Scotia. In the U.S., it is very threatened in Alabama, Kansas, North Carolina, South Carolina and Rhode Island, and is threatened in Delaware, Tennessee, Georgia and Indiana, and is vulnerable in the state of Nebraska. ========================================================================================= I'm producing seedling of l'canadense since more then 15 years on my land, I have start this year massive production so I can wholesale for garden center. My goal is to make it available, that way people will stop go taking the bulbs in the wild. and if there is seeds available more lily will be produce and less will be remove from there natural spaces.
