The mass planting of Lilium formosanum var. priceii in the peat walls is eye-catching. Two hundred or more trumpets on short stalks, max height of 300mm, give the area a spectacular look.
The bulbs each send out one spike bearing 2 – 5 blooms, predominantly white but with reddish striations on the outer surface. Held horizontally these fragrant flowers have a narrow perianth tube gradually expanding along the length to an open trumpet.
A native to Taiwan where it is found on grassy banks.
