Lilium regale Wilson 1912
Restricted to a considerably small area in China (Sichuan);
preferred at river banks
Dutch breeders produced a very robust Lilium regale, which is certainly the toughest garden lily ever. This cultivar no longer has much in common with the Chinese Lilium regale. It was therefore our endeavor to return to Chinese origin, to multiply it and present it finally.
