unknown lilia
« on: August 10, 2021, 03:45:06 PM »
Please help me to identify.
The plant should be a true species from China, but ..... )
I think it is probably  L. henryi or L. leichtlinii var. maximowiczii ???
I tried it with the identification key from e-flora china, from now on I can't and don't want to dig up the onion :-(
by the way: the flower had real "warts" on the inside
Thanks for help.
Bernd

Hi Bernd, definitely not henryi, that has broader leaves and rather pale orange flowers. It could be leichtlinii but is different to the form I am familiar with (leaves are narrower and generally less robust).

The narrow grassy foliage makes me think L. pumilum, but I think that is usually unspotted. Maybe a hybrid?

Thanks Tristan_He, I can't rule out a hybrid. Unfortunately I have not received any feedback on any platform except from you. It seems to be very difficult with the lilies?
I hope that maybe someone else from the department will post their thoughts here :-)
Warm greetings
Bernd

You're welcome Bernd. There is quite a useful online key here:

Other one it might be is L. davidii?

Hi Bernd,
I agree with Tristan, If this is a species, then L. davidii is most likely. There are many different forms of that species but both flower and foliage broadly align there. In reality, it is more likely a hybrid. L. davidii hybridizes readily and there are many out there. Many would be greater than 75% L. davidii.

I think Neil is right - L. davidii, or a  a hybrid of davidii .  Davifii does indeed have raised spots on the petals. I grew seed wild collected in Yamanashi prefecture, labeled as L. leichtlinii v maximowiczii.  The spots and pattern was somehow distinctive.  Honestly, I wouldn't know if these are the real thing or not.

And these are what is available here in the USA  as v maximowiczii that my friend grows.  They are much more robust, 60-80cm high, with wider, very shiny foliage.
