Gardeners' Notes:

L. bulbiferum is not only beautiful, but also a perfect lily for the beginner. It is eyecatching, very fragrant and rather robust to any mistreatment as it is extremely tolerant to even sub-optimal conditions. Throughout the season it produces small bulbils in it's leaves axis, which can be planted in the soil and will flower within 2 years too.
