Flowers:  June-July.  Plant in part shade.  HxS 1.5mx30cm

A stunning Turk’s Cap Lily with mahogany-red flowers and golden spots.  Martagon type lilies are stem rooting, so need to be planted 15cm/6in deep in good garden soil.  They may take a year to become established and then are very long lived and will naturalise. A great butterfly plant which also attracts other pollinators.  Grown organically in peat free compost.  Hardiness H7.

Care & Maintenance.

Can be divided in late summer or early autumn, as the foliage dies back.  Always plant deeply 15cm/6ins down.  Enjoys a mulch in spring.
