Lilium poilanei HWJ681
A beautiful highly scented species which we collected seed of on the Tram Trom Pass northern Vietnam at 2000m in 1999. One of the few footholds that it had survived in, which unfortunately has since been devastated making way for a new road into China. Here it grew on shady vertical cliffs, rooting into cracks and narrow shelves forming slender stems with scattered lanceolate leaves, 1-2m tall. Bearing 1-many large yellow pendant trumpet flowers with recurving tepals, stained red in the base August-October. Best grown in a well drained fertile soil with plenty of moisture retention in part shade.
