We re-named that species from “unidentified Lilium ex China 3, pink & white” to Lilium cf bakerianum var. yunnanense (China 3, pink & white)
We received bulbs of that species (named Lilium species pink/white) in late 2019. These are cultivated for us by Erwin Wenger in Vienna.
It´s for sure a lilium species belonging to the bakerianum-complex. Flowers appear (according to diff. clones) either in pink or in pure, the flower doesn´t open that wide like yunnanese. The white clone comes very close to bakerianum var. bakerianum showing very few spots in the centre only – but due to the hairy leaves it seems closer related to bakerianum var. yunnanense. As this lily appears partly in white and in pink (according to clones) this could be evident for a hybrid.
