Lily Bulb Description
A weak growing form of the type, it rarely reaches 3 feet tall in the garden. The pendant flowers are lightly spotted in red. We never had much luck with this wild lily, just keeping it alive was a monumental task. Very susceptible to virus, we have never personally brought it to flower. This photo was taken of a bulb flowered by the late Don Egger at Cebeco Lilies in 2000.
Photo inset is of a bulb of L. davidii. It produces a "rock hard" bulb that feels very waxy to the touch.
