clump of narrow, dark green leaves. It grows 12 – 24″ tall in contrast to the species that tops out over 3 ft. Unlike the species which is a late season bloomer, the dwarf Formosa lily blooms in spring. Grow in sun to part
shade in fertile, well-drained, moist soil. Hardy to -20 degrees F. The species is native to Taiwan. Liliaceae
