One of California's most charming native bulbs, Globe lily's round blossoms look like soap bubbles floating in the shade. Not difficult to grow, but exacting in its requirements - good drainage and no summer water, which will rot the bulb. Almost always seen as a mass in nature, this is recommended in the garden as well for the plants to have any sort of impact.
