(aka: L. formosanum v. pricei A1TW-215) We were very excited to finally see Lilium formosanum in the wilds of Taiwan in 2008. Lilium formosanum has a wide range on the island, from the lowland subtropics where it reaches 7' tall to above the alpine tree line where it never exceeds 2' tall. This seed strain is from our collection at 9,343' elevation on Hehuan Mountain in Nantou County. In the garden, Lilium formosanum v. pricei flowers much earlier than the lowland form (early June in NC) and never exceeds 2' tall with its large, fragrant, horizontally-held, funnel-shaped white flowers, flushed purple on the back.
