Scaly rhizomes ofAchimenes 'Robert Dressler'>From Jim waddick:///Lilium/ formosanum tall form.There has been considerable discussion on thislist about this species inJuly. My original plants came from seed collectedat the North CarolinaUniversity Arboretum, now the J.C. Raulston Arboretumin Raleigh NC fromplants with flowering stems about 8 ft tall.  My plantshave grown well foryears and seeded about slightly. These seeds are freshlymatured and podshave split. All plants have the same origin so height offlower stalk isrelated to growing conditions, soil, rainfall, etc.  I havekept seedseparate from 2 different plants9. .
