    Wasn't it Brooks that made a field trip report that he saw entire stands of S. leucophylla cut?

    Here is another cut "Lilly" vendor
    Cut Lillies

    I lost my bookmark, but there is a site that showed people harvesting S. leucophylla for the floral industry. Anyone know of it? It might have been a State or Federal site that mentions conservation.

    I found it.

    "Lillies" Being Cut for the Floral Trade

    I thought their was a better site with more pictures. This is one of them though.

    Maybe we need to investigate further and see who is behind the growing, harvesting, selling, exporting and importing.

    S. leucophylla is CITES Appendix II and is being considered for evaluation to Endangered. That would restrict the trade more.

    I think that there is a company that grows S. leucophylla on their own property and sells them. Not much that can be done about that unless the CITES status is changed.

    It should be OK if a company propagates and grows them on their own property but not going out and raping the land for them.

    Are they growing them on their own property for their own use? Or are they taking them from wild-lands? If they're wild collecting, they need to be strung up and shot. JMO.
