Beautiful pink flowers on this elegant plant formerly placed in Nomocharis and where they continue to reside in our hearts and minds. Grown from a seed collection in China by the very knowledgeable Bjornar Olsen, this is a very special plant. Some variation from evenly pink to a pale margin on the tepals.
Our collection from our way 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. Survived in Wisconsin where the ground 5' deep.
A rare species from northern Myanmar and adjacent Yunnan, this is even a rarer opportunity to purchase bulbs from seed collected in the wild by Bjornar Olsen. Nomocharis in cultivation live in the Summer of Love and welcome without reservation any pollen from any other Nomocharis nearby resulting in hybridity.
We have very few of these which we originally received as seed from a serious collector and grower in Scotland. The genus remains one of the most coveted in the Liliaceae and the thrill of seeing these in flower each year is felt as keenly as if it was the first time. We've had good reports from customers with Nomocharis in zone 5.
