Lilium formosanum var. pricei

Dwarf Formosa Lily

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.319.800

This charming dwarf Lily is ideal for the rock garden or near the front of a perennial border. It features big white sweetly-fragrant trumpet flowers flushed with dusty rose-purple on the back. Not long lived but sometimes will self-seed without becoming weedy. Prefers a rich but well-drained acidic soil. Easy to grow yourself by saving seed from the dried, ripe seedpods in the autumn. Often flowers in the first year on short stems, then becomes a bit taller in subsequent seasons.
