We are very excited about this 2001 recollection of the Chinese Lilium brownii by Duke Garden's Paul Jones from 6,700' elevation near Juizhaigou in Sichuan Province, where it grows on exposed sun-baked cliffs. This species was named after F.E. Brown of the UK, who first flowered the plant in cultivation. Our plants reach a dramatic height of 5', topped in early summer with clusters of 12-17 huge, fragrant white trumpets with purple staining on the buds that remains on the outside of the open petals. This has proven to be a great lily for baking hot climates. Our plants are seed-grown.
