This is a small lily from Northeastern Asia, growing up to around 2ft tall.

It has a large inflorescence on the top, bearing lots of small, Turk's cap shaped, pink with purple spots flowers, with long stamens and golden anthers. The bulb is not very long lived, so regular propagation is recomended. Also, let it dry out after the blooming season (summer).

It goes well on rocky soils, but requires regular watering. Also, it likes full sun.
