Lilium x – testaceum
Valia Kirna/Greece (where a natural habitat shall still occur)
Since it is a hybrid, our ambitions are rather restrained, but its natural occurrence still justifies paying attention to reproduction here. The colour of the flowers is impressive in pastel. A more intense salmon-coloured-alike flower colour, which we strive for, is achieved by backcrossing x-testaceum x Lilium chalcedonicum which comes close to the initial description of the so-called Nankeen-Lily.
