Lilium in the bog

Recommended Posts

Here is a few pictures of two bog species that I grow in the unheated greenhouse here in Denmark. Lilium iridollae and Lilium catesbaei

Both were obtained as seed back in 2018 and sown the same year. L catesbaei flowered after 18 months including a 6 month hibernation. L iridollae flowers for the first time here in summer 2023!

They grow in one of my indoor bogs together with mainly Sarracenia minor clones and S. rosea. Pure peat, moist but not really waterlogged for long. Highest temperature during the summer is 48C and lowest around minus 8 or 10C. Both extreams not for long. Anyway, they both appear easy under pitcherplant conditions.

Poor picture. Sorry! But it shows some of the bog and how small the Lilium is.

The beautiful L. catesbaei!
