(Species / Wild Lily)
This wonderful species was named for the soft yellow tones sometime found in its flowers in the most southerly portion of their range (Burma). In nature it is found on grassy slopes, in open woodlands as well as in gravelly loams on roadsides. This species was grown by our good friend, the late LeVern Freimann in Bellingham, Washington just a bit north east of us and he related on one visit it was instrumental in his development what went on to become 'Golden Splendor' following the purchase of his breeding stock by Jan de Graaff.
