Description from Old House Gardens

L. formosanum, FORMOSA LILY, 1918

This easy, heat-loving beauty looks like a very tall, very slender Easter lily and smells even better. With up to 12 narrow trumpets atop 5-7 foot stalks in late summer, it arrived in 1880 from Taiwan (where it’s now endangered), but didn’t catch on until re-introduced by E.H. Wilson in 1918. Some say it’s hardy in zone 5, but we guarantee it for 6b-9b(10bWC) only. In the right spot it self-sows happily and can bloom from seed its first year. Georgia-grown.
