WCU wants native flower back

Written by 

Forget roses. Susan Belcher is hoping for beds of Cullowhee lilies to blanket Western North Carolina in the coming years. 

Belcher — the wife of WCU Chancellor John Belcher — is leading an effort by the Western Carolina University Alumni Association to re-establish the flower in the Cullowhee valley by selling packages of the flower bulbs. The proceeds will be used to support the development of Cullowhee lily flowerbeds on campus and to grow a WCU Alumni Association Scholarship fund.

The packages will be sold through the month of October for $10 each. They may be purchased at Catamount Clothing and Gifts and Tuckasegee Trading Co. in Cullowhee; Bradley’s General Store, Dillsboro Smokehouse, Dogwood Crafters, Hopberry – A Primitive Home Collection, Oaks Gallery, Tunnel Mountain Crafts in Dillsboro; at Bryson Farm Supply, Country Road Farms Nursery & Garden Center, Ray’s Florist & Greenhouse and the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce in Sylva; and at other locations in Jackson County. The bulbs and Cullowhee lily notecards will be for sale before and during the Catamount Homecoming game against Elon Saturday, Oct. 26.
