Archive Item
This rare color form of L. nanum' shows up from time to time on specialty nursery bulb and seed lists and can vary from blue-violet to bluish to near violet. As with L. nanum this variant can also be a very unforgiving lily under cultivation with a bad habit of dying for no apparent reason. Long time species enthusiast Edward MrRae was commonly heard saying "To successfully grow L. nanum, you need to live in Scotland".

Our photo was graciously provided by Paul Christian of Rare Plants in the United Kingdom. He can be located on the web at were he offers not only lilium species, but also a nice selection of other “intriguing” goodies for the garden.
