Lee mentioned Lilium philippinense. 

Can anyone confirm that this species is in cultivation? 

Although I have seen plants labeled Lilium philippinense at lily shows, I'm
pretty sure the plants I've seen are Lilium formosanum, not L.

That there would be confusion is not surprising: Lilium formosanum was long
known as Lilium philippinense formosanum.

Montgomery County, Maryland, USA, USDA zone 7, where several dozen seedling
Lilium formosanum are coming along in a cold frame.
