Lilium bukozanense Honda 1942
Kews subsume Lilium bukozanense under Lilium maculatum. We deliberately single out this lily from the maculatum-complex because it would perish there as a true diamond. Bukozanense grew on near vertical cliffs about 60 km north of Tokyo and is one of those lilies that is excessively threatened with extinction.
Lilium bukozanense grows extremely fast and can reach a fls. bulb within 2-3 years after sowing. We actually keep about 12 different clones and will tc at least 4 of those clones step by step.
