Wild Lily: L. bukozanensc Honda 1942

First discovered as recently as 1942 at an elevation of 2,000 feet on the Japanese mountain Buko, 38 miles north-west of Tokyo. Grows in the soil pockets of near-vertical rock faces, with downward-hanging stems which bear large, erect, heavily spotted, orange-red, saucer-shaped flowers. The stem continues to retain its pendulous habit, even if the plant is grown in a pot. (NALS-LYB 1960, Moto’o Shimizu)
