Lily Bulb Description

This alpine Chinese, found sometimes at more than 10,000 feet, likes damp to boggy ground and is happy in woodland margins. In cultivation it seems to prefer a lighter soil (Sunshine Blend #4) that is uniformly damp throughout the active growth period. Produces a stoloniferous type bulb similar to L. canadense or L. superbum. It is best grown from seed as bulbs of Lilium duchartrei very much dislike being moved even from one end of the garden to the other.
