The Lilium Lancifolium

Generous heart.

The petals of this flower are curled similarly to the former, but they
bend back more in the form of a Turk's cap. There is a narrow strip of
bright yellow-green wax placed in the centre, and at the lower end of
each petal. The petals are painted light pink (crimson and white), and
covered with rich crimson spots. The roughness at the lower end of each
petal is produced by cutting small pieces of double white wax, and
pressing them on with the head of the pin. The pistillum and stamina are
also formed in the same manner as the lilium candidum, but vary in
colour. The filaments of the stamina are green, the anthers rich brown,
produced with crimson and cake sepia.
