(Species / Wild Lily)
From Tibet, and Myanmar with its range extending into the NW portions of Yunnan, the pendant, primrose yellow flowers of this rare beauty are richly colored in a royal purple. This example of var. burmanicum's dark form was taken by Mr. Melvyn Herbert of the United Kindgom. Melvyn has been very helpful in identifying this group of lilies which he says "the taxonomy of this group is in serious need of revision".
