Description
 
Nepal Lily.  One of our favorite Lilies and one we have had the pleasure of seeing in the wild in Arunachal Pradesh near eastern Bhutan where it was growing in low scrub on a sunny hillside.  This is not from that trip but is a particularly good form with very large pendant yellow-green flowers with a stunning chocolate maroon throat.  Really pretty amazing.  One thing that we especially enjoy is that it creeps about via underground rhizomes setting new bulbs along the way.  It is not unusual for it to pop up 18" away from where you planted it.  This fecund wanderlust does make for an impressive display in a few years. Good drainage in the winter and mulch.  Our planting in our raised shade garden bed had 80 flowers last year and was a sight.  These bulbs should flower but some may wait until next year.
