(Species / Wild Lily)
This photo taken by Boyd Kline between 1947 and 1950 is the only photo we have ever seen. Labeled simply as 'L. ochraceum' resulted in a great deal of time figuring out exactly what this lily was. 'L. ochraceum' back in the "old days" was the name this lily came under, but it was later classified as L. primulinum var. ochraceum.

Smaller and not as a dramatic appearing lily as L. primulinum var. burmanicum, found in upper Burma, this form was found not only in rocky ravines of SE Yunnan as also in open grass meadows at elevations up to about 8000 feet.

This historic old photo of an extremely rare species from Bill and Mary Hoffman as flowered by Edgar Kline in the late 1940's.
