LILIUM formosanum var. pricei


Dwarf  Formosa Lily, Lilium formosanum var pricei, is such a surprising lily with its full-size, fragrant, trumpet-shaped, white flowers to 8″ that have purple markings on the outside. The flowers are just above a diminuative 

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

Rapidly germinating, keep seed in constant moisture (not wet) with temperatures of about +20°C [68°F]. Seeds must be covered thinly. Do not cover very small seeds, but tightly press into the earth. Keep in cooler conditions after germination occurs.
