'L. lankongense' (Lilium)
Lily Bulb Description
One of the many beautiful Turk's Cap species native to the mountains of China, Lilium lankongense has been found to heights of 10,000 feet. Cultivation is relatively easy given the right conditions. Preferring uniformly damp soils and light shade, care must also be taken to protect it from virus infection to which it is susceptible. The flowers are a lovely shade of delicate pink with rose-pink spotting and carry a light scent. Simply, Lilium lankongense is one of the most lovely of all the species.
