:D It's beautiful Erik...I grow Martagons and that one is spectacular (and definitely not to be found here)! :'(

Thanks Pam and **May for your comments. This one is the wild form Pam (the common one) more rare is the white form.

And here the white one is easier to find. My father enjoys collecting them too so I'll be showing him your lovely photo Erik to see if he's seen one like the above.

Cheers from Canada, Pam

A beautiful Lilium Erik. I grow both forms in my garden in the UK, and I think that this one is actually better than the white form. The photo is stunning in enlargement too. Wonderful.

I'm not a fan of Lilies but this small delight is just amazing. Found several growing wild in de Vecors, wich is such an amazing area.

Greetings, Erik

The species lilies are mostly fine, and L. martagon is wonderful. I must say I have never seen them growing in the wild. Lucky you. :)

Greetings, Amelia
