'L. japonicum' (Lilium)
Lily Bulb Description
In its native Japan, it is known as "Sasa-Yuri" or the Bamboo Lily. Difficult to cultivate, it is highly susceptible to virus infection as well as Fusarium and is therefore short lived outside its native habitat. The bell-shaped flowers perch atop 2 to 3 foot stems and are light pink to white in color. Most notable cross by Jan DeGraaff with Lilium japonicum at Oregon Bulb Farm produced 'Pink Glory', a strain of pinks that bears a strong resemblance to Lilium japonicum . We regret that we have never unlocked the secrets of success with this rare and beautiful lily. L. japonicum photo courtesy of Ed McRae.
