Lily Bulb Description

Lily Bulb - 'L. speciosum var. album'
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.

Photo inset is a late 50's early 60's vintage photo of Mr. F. M. Wilson in a field of his L. speciosum rubrum selection 'Lucy Wilson' near Puyallup, Washington. Photo provided by the late John Schaver, founder of Rex Lilies. Mr. Wilson also made the speciosum selections of 'Cinderella', and 'Grand Commander'.
