This variant of Lilium speciosum is beyond compare. Lightly fragrant, the pure white flowers are truly angelic in color and form. Light green nectary furrows grace the exceptionally beautiful form of these semi-pendant blooms. Flowering in late August in the Northwest, Lilium speciosum album is used by most gardeners to end the blooming season in the garden.
