Our favorite of the Lilium davidii group, 'willmottiae' has a much more elegant flower with graceful arching stems. Having a tendency to wander underground for some distance before emerging, the underground portions of the stems readily produce bulblets at each internode. A native to the western Hupeh province of China, it naturally grows at higher elevations. Shown growing in a cool greenhouse of the late Don Egger. Photo copyright B & D Lilies, all rights reserved.
