Lily Bulb Description
Found further south than any other species, a native to India, the flowers of Lilium nielgherrense are very narrow, flaring finally at the end of their trumpet shape. Best suited to a cool greenhouse, planting in the open garden nearly always meets with failure. The stems of this species run underground for some distance before emerging. We have never attempted this species. Old Oregon Bulb Farm stock photo courtesy of Ed McRae.
