Very Heavy scent. 4 to 6 Feet. July flowering.

(Chinese native) Beloved, funnel-shaped flowers, very popular for historic preservation sites for their "vintage" role in the evolution of the American landscape. These heavily-fragrant blooms are wonderful as a bridge between early Asiatics and late Oriental lilies. Culture same as Trumpet hybrids. White flowers with yellow throats, pale to dark pink outer coloring. Enchanting fragrance and easy-care. In nature, L. regale is only found in the Min River Valley of central Sichuan province, China. There it can be seen growing by the thousands on the steep cliffs, often with bulbs wedged into fractures in the cliff walls.

'L. regale' is perfect in the herbaceous border planted among delphiniums and other July flowering perennials. Introduced to England from China in 1903, our seed grown stock comes from select parents showing greatest flower size and vigor. Grows an average of 5 feet tall, but can be much taller if left undisturbed for a few years, and given regular weeding, watering and fertilizing. 3 to 6 Feet. Highly Fragrant. July.

Bulb Size - Our standard for bulbs of this lily cultivar ranges from Premium-size (16/18 cm) to Exhibition-size (over 20 cm).

Classification: Lilium Species (USDA Zones 6-9, colder climates w/winter mulch.)
