Fairy Lily (Lilium speciosum Thunb. ‘Gloriosoides’ ) first year and the second year growth progress. 艷紅鹿子百合實生苗第1年與第2年的生長進度.

The natural mutation of Lilium speciosum.  Bulbous perennial with gorgeous large fragrant flowers!  This rare variety is native only in Taiwan.  It was endangered once due to over harvesting and habitat lost.   Luckily now there are more gardeners helping out to propagate this!  Easy to grow.  Best growing in full sun to partial shade location in moist acidic rich soil.  Large fragrant white flowers with scarlet markings bloom in late spring to mid summer.  Flowers open downwards.  Flowers attract bees and butterflies.  Excellent for cut flower — if you grow a lot… USDA Zones:?-9.  Mature size:6′-8′(H) X 1′-1.5′(W).  Propagate by seeds, scaling, bulbs or division.  Cooked bulbous roots are edible.  Medicinal.

又稱為藥百合.  它是鹿子百合自然發生的變異.  這多年生球根花卉有著大朵的香花! 這稀有的變異為台灣的特有種百合.  因過度開採與原生地的破壞曾一度瀕危.  還好經由許多愛花人的幫忙繁殖復育與原生地的保護,如今大家還能看到它美麗的身影!  容易栽種. 最好栽種在全日照到半日照處的偏酸性的濕潤沃土. 芳香的大花是白色有著鮮紅的斑紋,於春末到夏季間盛開. 花朵是向下開的.  花頗吸引蜂蝶. 如果你種植很多的話倒是頗適合做為切花的花材.  喜溫暖不甚耐寒.  成熟株高可達6-8呎,寬幅1-1.5呎.  繁殖以種子,鱗莖,球根或分株的方式來進行.  球根煮後可食.  可藥用.
