Pot Size: 4 litre
Description: From seed we collected in the autumn of 2005 from the mountainous forests of Hiroshima, Japan. Where this unusual form had borne a bountiful display of flowers on tall stems over 3m tall in the moist coniferous forest. A rare species to cultivation, taking 9 years or more to flower from seed, meanwhile forming a clump of off-set bulbs, which give a continuation, as each bulb dies after flowering. With large glossy cordate basal leaves, below the scented squarish white trumpet lilies, held on upright stems 1 to 2m tall. Best in full to part shade in an acidic humus rich, well drained soil. Easier to cultivate in warmer drier climates than C. gigantea.
