Dear Bill,

You might enjoy this photo of Lilium in my apartment in Japan. My research assistant here in Osaka says her father has been trying to encourage the naturalisation of this species in southern Japan by planting it along roadsides, for the last 10 years (not an illegal activity in Japan, apparently). The plant is said to originate in Taiwan and the Japanese name comes from the Japanese Occupation period, when Japanese encountered the flower and named it after a tribe in the mountains of Taiwan, in the area where it often grows: takasago-uri .
