Lily Bulb Description

Nanum, meaning dwarf, this is a very small alpine lily growing only 6 to 12 inches, Lilium nanum is found distributed through the Himalayas. Taxonomists classified this lilium species as a 'nomocharis' for many years. The bell-shaped pink-to-lilac flowers have purple spots. Found in cultivation for over 100 years, bulbs are rarely seen available. It highly dislikes being moved and is best started from seed planted where they can just be left alone. Often takes 5 or more years to flower. (Photo taken by Edward McRae at Keillour Castle in Scotland.)
