  • latitude 46.28524   longitude 13.51217     View on Google Maps.
  • location   West of the road Bovec-Kobarid, between villages Trnovo and Srpenica, East Julian Alps (Posočje, Slovenia)
  • notes   Slo.: rumenorjava maslenica - syn.: Hemerocallis lilio-asphodelus var. fulva L - Habitat: Road and wood side, unmaintained grassland, flat terrain, calcareous ground, partly sunny but usually moist place, average precipitations ~ 3.000 mm/year, average temperature 8-10 deg C, elevation 375 m (1.250 feet), alpine phytogeographical region. - Substratum: soil, partly semiruderal place. - Comment: This beautiful lily is not native to Slovenia and originates in China. It is frequently cultivated. But, particularly in west part of my country, it escaped from gardens and is now growing wild on many places in Posočje. Sometimes it forms quite extended stand. Fortunately, it is not too aggressive and not considered as a treat to natives. Anyway, there is no doubt; it is a beautiful but somehow unusually looking plant for Alpine environment. Growing always in groups of many plants. - Ref.: (1) A. Martinči et all., Mala Flora Slovenije, Tehnična Založba Slovenije (2007) (in Slovene), p 734. (2) D. Aeschimann, K. Lauber, D.M. Moser, J.P.
