🇸🇮 Slovenian Lilies

Genera » Lilium

No, you won’t find the beautiful flowers you can buy at the florist growing around Slovenia. The closest you’d get would be daylilies but they aren’t even lilies…

There are four species of wild lilies growing in Slovenia:

  • Martagon lily in shady spots like subalpine forests
  • Golden apple in alpine meadows
  • Orange lily in warm meadows of south-western Slovenia
  • Another variant subspecies of orange lily (or is it a separate species? Ask three botanists and get five answers), Lilium croceum / Lilium bulbiferum var. croceum, grows only on Snežnik.
