(Species / Wild Lily)
(The clone known as 'Rubrum #10' is pictured.) An easily grown Japanese native, there have been many variants and selections introduced to commerce over the years. A late season bloomer, the flowers are light to medium pink, are fragrant, and generally spotted. As with most hybrid lilies, a well drained garden site with some humus added to the soil will be found to its liking. It was pollen from a fine selection of Lilium speciosum rubrum being grown at the USDA research station in Beltsville, Maryland that gave the breeding breakthrough producing the world renowned Imperial Hybrids of Jan de Graaff. Also of great significance is the pure white hybrid 'Allegra' bred at Beltsville.

Inset photo #1 is of Lilium speciosum var. 'Wing Dancer', a selection of the late Leslie Woodriff.

Photo insert #2 is the named selection of a very early flowering form '4th of July'. Photo courtesy of and copyright by Pontus Wallsten, all rights reserved. Used with permission.
