'L. auratum var. virginale' (Lilium species or wild lily)
The unspotted or "virgin" form of Lilium auratum can be a little more temperamental in the garden. Sharp drainage is a must. Where a hybrid such as 'Casablanca' or 'Star Gazer' might do just fine, it can be too wet most years for Virginale.
Wild Lily bulbs making up the genus Lilium belong to the family Liliaceae comprising of approximately 200 genera made up of approximately 2,000 lily species. There are in the neighborhood of 110 to 120 Lilium species depending on whose classification you reference. For the full article, click Knowledge Base
