Lilium formosanum, a perennial herb originating in Taiwan, and introduced in Japan via England in 1924, grows wild on sunny slopes, roadsides, or open spaces, measuring 0.3-1.5m in height, with about 5cm across spherical to broadly ovate bulbs. Leaves are alternate, densely attached, 10-30cm long, 0.5-1cm wide, linear to narrowly lanceolate, with entire margins. Upper parts of the stems emerge racemes with some numbers of flowers that bloom facing sideways or a little downward. The lowers are white, tubular, 15-20cm long, and white.
