Lily Bulb Description

This native of Tibet is found at elevations to 10,000 feet among thickets and conifers. A taller alpine type reaching over 4 feet, the flowers are Turk's Cap in form and quite fragrant. Carrying upwards of 40 flowers, they are deep and heavily spotted in carmine. Requiring light shade and a well drained loam soil with generous amounts of leaf mold added, it will grow, though not well. This beauty likes to run underground for 2 to 3 feet before emerging. On the plus side though, it produces little bulblets all along the underground portion of the stem.
