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.
