Lilium Pyrenaicum Rubrum
In early June, dense whorls of slightly silvered compact leaves on shortish, stout stems are topped by glorious, deep orange flowers, rather than the more usual yellow ones, the interior of each flower being rust-speckled, especially in the throat. This form is rarely offered either as seeds or bulbs.
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.
