Good morning JoeBass,

I grew this lily for about fifteen minutes once, but did not give it the more special care it requires and it went away. I think I may start to grow these less usual and expensive lilies now. I have ten nepalense under my care at present and hope to grow them well this year.

Kind regards,

Peter I tip my hat to you.

Peter it was just a description regarding L. Duchartrei that I read about. It noted white hairs in the leaf axils. That is a reason that I believe it to be duchartrei as opposed to L. taliense, which is what I purchased it as. Also it has some papillae in the green nectaries which should not be present on taliense. If you would like to know my source, send me a tree mail.
