A member of the Liliaceae family, Lilium davidii Duch does not go by a known (to us) common name. The Bulb can grow to a height of 1 meters and up to 0.25 meters wide. The preferred habitat of Moist places in forests, forest margins and grassy slopes at elevations of 800 - 3200 metres., with LM soil and SN moisture levels. .
The plant is a zone 5 hardy plant that has no known (to us) medicinal uses - the medicinal usage rating of the plant is 0.
Lilium davidii is 0 plant, whose flowers bloom typically in 7 - 8, and which is pollinated by Bees.
The plant has an edibility rating of 2Bulb - cooked[105, 143]. One of the larger lily bulbs, it is up to 45mm in diameter. Rich in starch, it can be used as a vegetable in similar ways to potatoes (Solanum tuberosum).
Cultivation tips: Prefers an open free-draining humus-rich loamy soil with its roots in the shade and its head in the sun. An easily grown plant, it tolerates some lime in the soil[143, 163, 200]. Stem rooting, the bulbs should be planted 15 - 20 centimeters deep. Early to mid autumn is the best time to plant out the bulbs in cool temperate areas, in warmer areas they can be planted out as late as late autumn.
This species is occasionally cultivated for its edible bulb in China. . The plant is widely cultivated for its root according to another report. Closely allied to L. willmottiae. . The plant should be protected against rabbits and slugs in early spring. If the shoot tip is eaten out the bulb will not grow in that year and will lose vigour.
. The plant should best be propagated by Seed - immediate epigeal germination. Sow thinly in pots from late winter to early spring in a cold frame. Should germinate in 2 - 4 weeks. Great care should be taken in pricking out the young seedlings, many people prefer to leave them in the seed pot until they die down at the end of their second years growth. This necessitates sowing the seed thinly and using a reasonably fertile sowing medium. The plants will also require regular feeding when in growth. Divide the young bulbs when they are dormant, putting 2 - 3 in each pot, and grow them on for at least another year before planting them out into their permanent positions when the plants are dormant[K]. Division with care in the autumn once the leaves have died down. Replant immediately. Bulb scales can be removed from the bulbs in early autumn. If they are kept in a warm dark place in a bag of moist peat, they will produce bulblets. These bulblets can be potted up and grown on in the greenhouse until they are large enough to plant out. The formation of bulbils on the stem can be induced by either removing the stem at flowering time and layering it just below the soil surface, or by removing all the flowers before they open.
