'L. superbum var. Mississippi' (Species or Wild Lily)
From seed collected in Mississippi and sent to us back in the mid 1980's, the flowers of this extremely southern colony appeared softer and more "blended" in color than their more familar northern cousins. We found it not to be as hardy as the more northern plants and it suffered from single digit winter temperatures.
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
