The brindle lily (Lilium lancifolium) is a bulbous plant from East Asia (China, Japan, Corea) and it can be 120-180 cm height. Flowers measure about 9 cm, they are orange and have spotted red blossoms that they show to guide pollinators to the nectar. Male and female parts are composed by six stamen with red anthers and a large pistil with a stigma at the tip of the same colour. These flowers are often faced down with stams holding on the flat. Their flowering occurs only in August. This plant need lots of sun and it can not raise on calcareous earth. It is used in hibridizations because of its easy cultivation and gorgeous blooming.
