I keep looking for a list of at least a few lilies that produce bulbils and all I can up with are the regulare orange tiger lilies. Does anyone have any other lilies with bulbils? I would really like to get some. THX!

Our original list is not here: it's still on DG.

it's in a thread called Who has bulbils? here:
http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1009302/?hl=who+ha...

I had compiled the posters' information and kept the complete list up to date in this post in the thread:
http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/p.php?pid=6857452

Regarding Lilium leichtlinii var. maximowiczii, since I now grow it from seed wild collected in Japan, I can say it definitely does not always produce bulbils. Mine never have (so far), and they are 4 years old from seed. They are not even remotely like the one claimed to be the same name in the DG thread. I am reprinting the list (below) for our use (and updating) here, and I have removed L. leichtlinii var. maximowiczii, pending dissenting credible data.
--- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- ---
Always = the type produces bulbils ever year.
Sometimes = plants must be induced (somehow) to produce bulbils.
Unknown = I couldn't tell by the post (on the original DG thread) which it is of the above.
