Lilium  wallichianum 

From the Himalayan region, this species comes from warmer valleys and grows among tall growing thatch grass and lightly shaded woodlands. It has thin, wiry stems which has the strength to hold up such large white trumpet shaped flowers. The stems grow up to 5ft tall and has thin, slender leaves. This is also a stoloniferous type of lily.

 Blooms in mid summer during the monsoon rains.  Distributed from Northwest India through Nepal and Darjeeling and Sikkim Himalayas and further east through Bhutan and Northeast India
