This late-flowering species that is native to eastern Asia from Taiwan to Siberia, northern and central China and Japan, has one of the widest ranges of an Asiatic lily. These lovely brick-red flowered plants with reflexed petals are rarely offered in commerce, but they are excellent additions for well drained rock gardens and are easily grown from seed. Few seeds collected.
Sow seeds at any time, covering them very thinly with compost or grit, keeping the seed pot in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination so be very patient as many species will only germinate in the spring after chilling or freezing in the moist seed pot in the winter. Grow on individual seedlings in small pots until of sufficient size to be potted on or planted out into the open ground.
