Lilium martagon var. caucasianum



Lilium martagon Linnaeus 1753

Kew Gardens just accept two infraspecifics among Lilium martagon, as there is Lilium martagon var. martagon (habitats among Europe) and the Asian variation Lilium martagon var. pilosiusculum. As there are far more (at least colour-strains) we leave Kews´ point of view due to our propagation/preservation aims once more.

Weatern Caucasus. Just a single habitat is known so far, Mountain Apianga near Sukhumi. The plant is very tall, some clones reaching 2.5 m in height. Growing best in sunny but sheltered areas.
