Large, white, fragrant trumpets, which are quite similar to Lilium leucanthum or Lilium regale, are held on strong stems, which carry only a few, dark green, shiny, very narrow lanceolate leaves. This is rather a rare plant in spite of being easy to grow.
Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, 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 tray 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.
