I'd just like to say that my experience has been more like Jim Jones 
experience than Mark McDonough. I sowed both the species and the variety 
from seeds supplied to a seed exchange. Both germinated well and went on to 
bloom in a shorter time than I expected. I still have Lilium formosanum in 
my garden. Whether it is from those original plants or from seeds that got 
away after it originally bloomed, I can't be sure. It hasn't been invasive 
and is a nice addition to my garden usually blooming in the fall. I no 
longer have Lilium formosanum var. pricei.  I seem to remember one year 
there was a taller version of it blooming in a similar spot, but it's not 
there now and I could be wrong.

My conditions are really different than Mark's in Massachusetts however.
