whatever happened to Lilium majoense

And the various other Chinese lilies that appeared on the market around 2003, but only for a couple years.
IIRC even Wayside was once selling L. majoense, which kind of resembled Lilium nepalense. Now I can't find any nursery, even a specialty one, that has those plants. I thought by now growers in this country would have built up stocks. Have I not waited long enough?
L. majoense grew fine for me, but, when I moved gardens in winter due to a home sale in 2006, I was not able to locate the bulb.

It has been one of my most favorite species and is thriving very well in my garden.

It should be available shortly as I've been distributing seed of it.

Hi Riz,

I think I have some of your majoense "babies" growing from seed from the NALS seed exchange. Thanks for donating!

They are happily in a window box on my porch. Most have their true leaf now. Can you tell me how long it takes to flower from seed?
