'L. alexandrae' (Lilium)
Lily Bulb Description
"Uke-Yuri" in Japan, is found on only three small islands, the largest island, Uke-shima is the one for which this lily was named. Very similar to Lilium nobilissimum, Lilium alexandrae produces large, highly fragrant, pure white flowers that are carried horizontally to slightly erect. A difficult subject, a greenhouse is almost a requirement for successful cultivation. This species is very susceptible to virus. Self-fertile, seed of Lilium alexandrae can take 12 months or more to germinate making patience truly a virtue. Best grown in pots containing a free draining medium rich in compost.
