Dear Luc,

Lilium wallichianum hails from the Sikkim Himalayas and is admired for it 
fragrance. It grows on open grasssy slopes  in the subtropical zone and has 
to be cultivated in well drained medium with pea shingles, some sand and 
garden soil. We grow them in the open here at elevation of 500-800m. Summer 
temperatures could go upto 32 C with plenty of rain from end June-early 

Hope this information written hurriedly helps.



Udai C. Pradhan
