In my efforts to learn more about the Lilium genus, I have run into a bit of a brick wall with Lily (Lilium matangense). There seems to be almost no information about this species, apart from it being known only from a single location in China. As @Joebass has commented, there don't even appear to be any photos or drawings of it on the Internet.

I was hoping that those with experience with this species (or even those who have come across further information on it - for example, I haven't found any papers or articles on it) might be able to share their knowledge.

Thanks.

Thanks Patrick. That's certainly a starting point - I now have an idea of what it looks like. How did I miss the entry on the Genus Lilium? D'Oh!

Thanks Rick. I had stumbled across that last paper (on Nomocharis) independently some time ago but didn't remember the connection to L. matangense. I'll have to have a look through the papers in the Google Scholar results as well.

For those interested, it seems these may be the first photos of L. matangense published online:

The bud color is quite spectacular!

The site has a lot of excellent photos of all kinds. But there must be some glaring mistakes that are clearly accidentally misplaced, like if you scroll down the Lilium brownii var. viridulum.

Anyway, what do you think this one is all about?

Looks like it has been harvested as a crop! Interesting.
