In 'Lilies' by Patrick M. Synge, Universal Books, 1980, he states that var. puncatum is "paler than 'Melpomense and does not have a large or well formed of a flower." He says however, "This is the form grown widely in Holland and is much used for forcing". Much has changed since 1980 as this lily is now no longer found in commerce for either the garden or the forcing trade.

Pontus has an excellent book titled 'The Lily Species and their bulbs' and he can be contacted by email at for more information. He also offers some rare species lilies in limited quantities that are shipped from his nursery in Switzerland.
