This 2000 Dan Hinkley introduction comes from a collection in Southern Sichuan Province (originally sold as Lilium leucanthemum). These stately 6' tall lilies are topped from late June to July with huge downward-facing fragrant trumpets of pure white. The flower backs are tinged green toward the petal tips, and purple toward the back. Lilium sargentiae also forms a few leaf bulbils in the top foot of the stem for assistance in propagation. Although typically one-to four-flowered and reaching 3-5' in height, this form tops out at 6' for us with 5-8 flowers per stalk. Lilium sargentiae prefers slightly acidic soils and good winter drainage.
