(Species / Wild Lily)
Named after Max Leichtlin, this Japanese native has several very interesting variants. Rarely offered in commerce, the pendant flowers are lemon-yellow and carry many red-purple spots. Reaching a mature height of 3 feet, it can be and often is difficult in the garden if drainage conditions are not to its liking. A late bloomer, it requires a light, but deep, well drained soil that is rich in humus.

Photo insert is of a golden yellow form of L. leichtlinii being cultivated in Holland. It is felt it is probably a hybrid.
