Lilium Bakerianum or Lilium sempervivoideum?
« on: December 19, 2013, 03:57:07 PM »
Here I am again with another lilium sp to ID..

I bought 3 bulbs of this sp 3 years ago, if I remember correctly, they where labelled bakerianum yunnanense, or bakerianum rubrum..which to my knowledge are both pinkish white, fairly largish hanging bells with darker coloured spots in the centre.

When my bulbs flowered, the flowers where faiirly small, more "cup" shaped, small bells, white with some purple red spotting inside.

Of course, there is always some variation in these chinese sp, but having researched  Lilium sempervivoideum lately I thought that this sp also has a few similarities to it...

in flower, these plants varied between about 20 and 35 cm's tall, leaves where scattered along the stem.
