An East Asian species found naturally in southern areas of Japan and China, Lilium Speciosum, also known as a Rubrum or Japanese Lily, is one of the last lilies to flower, blooming in August and September. Standing about 1,2 meters tall (or 4 feet), this plant produces beautiful recurved star-like blooms. As the dainty flowers of Lilium Speciosum hang their exquisite heads downward, it looks like these elaborately decorative red and white stars could be falling from the sky straight into your garden. At the same time they emit a sweet fragrance. The Lilium Speciosum species likes light or medium soil that’s moist but with good drainage. It can tolerate sunny areas but flourishes in shaded woodland areas by nature.
