Lily Bulb Description

It is said that Mr. Kingdom Ward discovered this rare beauty in 1946 while searching for missing aircraft in Burma. Found at altitudes of 7000 feet or more, the flowers of Lilium mackliniae are bell-shaped and held in a pendant form. It grows well in cultivation especially if planted in a bed of good draining peat and light shade. It enjoys the same conditions as azaleas and rhododendrons and seems to like their company in the garden. Lilium mackliniae likes our cool, damp climate here in the Pacific Northwest.
