Family liliaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers rose (late spring-summer)
Light sun-part shade
Cultural notes appreciates moist conditions in summer

Species native to high elevations in China. Its purple-pink flowers come in clusters whose individual flowers are shaped like a tube. We had a few flowers in the second year, and a bigger show in the third. I hope the trend continues!

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
