Flowers: June-July. Plant in part shade. HxS 1mx30cm
A species Martagon lily from Korea, often used in breeding to create other colours in this group. The brilliant orange-yellow flowers have small purple-brown to black markings at the base of the recurved tepals. As with all martagons the bulbs can take a year or so to get established, but are then very long lived and increase well. They prefer a good humus rich alkaline or neutral soil. Up to 12 or more flowers per stem, each heavily scented and 3-4cm across. Organically grown in peat free compost, these are large flowering sized bulbs. Hardiness zone H7. Pot size 2L deep.
Care & Maintenance
Martagon lilies are stem rooting so it is important to plant them deeply, up to 15cm/6″ down, which is why we use deep pots. Collect seed or plant scales in small pots. Can be divided once the clump has grown.
