Description

Lilium lophophorum Franchet 1898

Origin:
China (Sichuan, Xizang, Yunnan); forests, bushy slopes, alpine grasslands, altitude 2.500 – 4.500 m

Laboratory-comment:
Sometimes lophophora with pink colours are shown, partly as bulb-offers. Sometimes lophophorum turns pink when the flowers are fading or when the bulb itself is extremely stressed and about to die off.
