Description
 
Second generation plants from our collection from along our way up the mountain to Tianchi Lake in Yunnan.  We found this Lily relative (which has been called N. forrestii) growing in a wooded copse with Sorbus reducta.   Likes a good moist soil and can have 7-10 flowers per stem in our experience when it gets some age.  Pretty much awesome.  These are young bulbs which should flower next year (although we can't guarantee that) and a must-have for cool northern woodland gardens. If you garden in Kansas, Texas or most of the Southeast for example, it is probably better to just enjoy the photo.  These survived the brutal 2013-14 winter in Wisconsin at a customer's garden as newly planted bulbs in the fall which is impressive considering the ground froze 5' deep.  Hardy to zone 5 if not zone 4..
