Up in Zone 6a.I was weeding in a new iris area and noticed the 2 inch in diameter top of a Martagone.This lily has been in the ground 5 years.
I think it grew about 20 inches last spring but frost cut any bloom short.
I had been stepping on this poor bulb for weeks.
I dug a deeper hole and fertilized it and replanted with a marker.
I hope this wont mean another summer without Mrs.O. Backhouse.

ge1836, Now that you aren't stepping on it all the time, I think it should be fine if it doesn't get hit again by a late frost. Not much that you can do about that except to try to cover it. Lily Socks? I try to plant all my lilies a bit deeper than called for, but I know that lilum "pull" themselves into the ground to the optimal depth by those contractile roots that they have. Way cool to see those accordion like structures. I like to help mother nature and assume it takes a lily bit longer to show themselves in the spring thus possibly avoiding a late frost if planted deeper. Good luck as Mrs. O. B is very lovely.

I am happy to report the Backhouse Mart I replanted is knocking itself out.Wonder of wonders I believe the other 2 are coming up as well.So many lilies I wouldnt know which is wich Baruta is in the same area .My maps are some help but not as much as the constant pictures.
I am trying to find space in that area to plant 3 foxgloves.
A wedge is needed.

Here is Backhouse I count 4 shoots

So good to see those lily shoots. Even better, I think, than peony pips or tulips

They are tough...kind of like you and me! Glad to hear. My lilies are growing like stink. I am planting a few hundred more this week just to be sure. L. Baruta is spectacular as I know you know from seeing photo's of it that you have posted. I planted 2 Baruta from the good old days of DG coops in 2009 and they have grown to be at least 7 feet tall each year. Stunning. Another serious yellow favorite in our garden is the very fragrant tall one from Buggycrazy called Lily Div. 8 Other Hybrids Georgette. Miss her more than the coops. Patti
