LILIUM FORMOSANUM var. PRICEI
A bed of these makes quite an unbelievable sight. Fragrant, chocolate-striped, three inch ivory trumpets open on very, very short stems, the long flower buds often opening as they bend to touch the ground. This unforgettable rockery plant can easily flower the first year from an early sowing.
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.
