Lilies of China

Dear Friends,
	I read the newest 'Bulb Garden'* with interest as always, 
especially the cover article on Quarryhill Gardens and Chinese 
lilies, but was sort of surprised to  miss mention of Lilium 
rosthornii. This is apparently rather uncommon in nature and some 
literature references suggest it is simply a form of the closely 
related L. henryi.

	Mine just happens to be blooming now and I wonder how widely 
this is grown. I got mine directly from China a few years ago and it 
has slowly developed into a few blooming stems.

	Appreciate comments from liliophiles.		Best		Jim W.
