Back in 8-30-08, I planted some seed from Hardyplants.com labelled Lillium willmottiae. I have e-mailed them several times without a reply. I tried looking them up in our database but could not find. Has anyone grew this lily? Does anyone have a photo? Here are photos of them growing as of 4-29-12.

Instructions on the seed pack is as follows: Soak seeds in warm water for 24 hours then use 4 weeks at 65-74 F. If no germination use 4 weeks at 32-39 F, move to 50-60 F for germination.

Out of 15 seeds I have 2 growing. There might be other containers I haven't found yet.

Just found this on their website (Hardyplants.com) under new items. Not available right now - sold out, but the photo looks like a Tigrinum series.

Lilium davidii var. willmottiae


Large bright orange red flowers with darker purple spots. Flowering in mid summer with 2 to 8 flowers per stem. The bulbs are eaten in China.

Native from China and Central Asia, were it is found growing in moist locations in forests, along forest margins and grassy slopes.

25 seeds

L. davidii var. willmottiae is correct and is in the database as such-- no entries yet. It should germinate as an Asiatic in 12-20 days. Did you hold back some seed or use it all up?

Yes, Lilium davidii var. willmottiae. The species is quite prolific, and the bulbs are tasty. Big Grin
