|L. monadelphum is a clump-forming, true species lily, with stiff stems and scattered, lance-shaped to inversely lance-shaped leaves, bright green. Bears in midseason, racemes of up to 30 large, nodding, fragrant, broadly trumpet-shaped yellow flowers, flecked and spotted maroon inside, purplish brown outside. Lime-tolerant. Thrives in fairly heavy soil, and survives in drier, sunnier conditions than most lilies. N.E Turkey, Caucasus.
