About Mountain Lily
Scientific name: Lilium auratum
English name: gold-banded lily. This lily is native to Japan, and grows wild in mountain woods and grasslands. In July and August it produces large white and gold blossoms, the largest of the lily family. From the mid 1800's until the 1920's, bulbs of this lily were a major export for Japan.
