This native perennial of the Pacific northwest is hardy to USDA zone 5 and is not frost tender.

Blooming from April to May, the flowers have both male and female reproductive parts.

It prefers light sandy to loamy soil that is moist but well-drained.

Perfect in a light woodland setting of dappled shade. Will not usually survive in full sun.

Reproduces naturally by self-sowing seedlings which take 3 - 4 years to bloom.

In the wild, the Pink Fawn Lily occurs in the fringe areas of forests and in shaded woodland openings.

Ranging from southern British Columbia to the northwestern part of California.
