Bulblog 30 2011

I am trying to catch up with the bulb logs and arrived at 30/2011.
I cannot see that anyone answered the question about the identity of the Lilium so I will have a go at it.
It is difficult to be sure without seeing the whole plant but it looks like belonging to the  lankongense - duchartreii complex. I would call it lankongense because it is pink. The keys differ between pink an white and between raceme and umbel. However, all four combinations seem to be possible.

Thanks, Göte  - I'll draw this to Ian's attention. 
I think we did decide it was likely L. langkongense.... don't know why he wrote that he thought it might be american  :-\

A bit like my experience here:
