Lily fields are in bloom locally — but not for long, as the blooms are removed to promote bulb growth. 

Later in the season, bulbs will be harvested and shipped to nurseries to be planted in pots. When the new plants bloom next spring, they will be marketed as Easter lilies.

Nearly all Easter lilies sold in pots had their beginning in the fields between Brookings and Smith River.
