Wild Lily: L. sempervivoideum Leveille 1915

A Chinese lily from Yunnan, which only grows 6 inches tall, has fine, grass-like leaves, and up to three small, white, pendulous, finely purple-spotted flowers. Grows on stony ground at heights of about 8,000 feet. The shape of its bulb gave rise to the name sempervivoideum. Not in cultivation.
