Lily Bulb Description

Native to NE Turkey, this species a few years back was being marketed by a Dutch company as Lilium monadelphum . Exported directly from Holland as "nursery grown" bulbs, they more than likely were collected in the wild with Lilium monadelphum, which shares its native range. Found in alkaline soils, these semi-pendant flowers are a soft butter yellow with deep purple throats. Distinguished from Lilium monadelphum by fine hairs produced on the leaves as well as the buds, Lilium ciliatum carries a sweet 'Trillium' like fragrance.
