Lily Bulb Description

The alpine 'Maiden Lily' of Japan. Known as "Otome-Yuri", the flaring, open trumpet type flowers are a clear and delicate pink rarely seen even in today's "modern" hybrids. Purebred bulbs of Lilium rubellum are not easy to cultivate and requires a very acidic soil that is well drained. Being an alpine lily that is covered with snow, it must be protected from winter rains in the garden. Best suited to a cool greenhouse we still remember the day our first blooms of Lilium rubellum opened from seed that was given us by the Ofuna Botanical Garden.
