Lilium longiflorum var. longiflorum, originating in Japan, is a beautiful and easy-care white lily to add to your garden. It is often referred to as the "Easter Lily."

I have had this species Lilim growing for a number of years. My original (very large) root/corm division came from an extremely old garden that sadly no longer exists, due to road development in the area of the highway where it was. Both the house & gardens were long ago demolished.
Many plants from the garden 'escaped', including the liliums as they naturalise' very easily due to the nature of their many, many seeds.
I also have other hybrid liliums in my garden in close proximity to these .. I am collecting seeds & bulbils from all of them in the hope of some interesting crosses. I might find out in a year or two, or three or four!
Anyone else trying this? What have your results been?
