Neutral coriaceous On Apr 5, 2014, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

Martagons are among my favorite lilies. They have a delicacy, charm, and natural gracefulness that the bigger lilies lack, and they can produce as many as 50 flowers per stem. May/June blooming.

Martagons are more shade tolerant than most lilies. The parent species are plants of woodland glades and edges.

Like all martagons, these hate being moved and may refuse to send up a stem the first season, especially after spring planting. They prefer to be moved while blooming, or in the fall. They are relatively slow growing.

Martagons can take the heat of Z9-10 but need more winter chill than they get there.

This is a hybrid with three species in its ancestry: L. martagon, L. hansonii, and L. tsingtauense.

Originally introduced in 1972 as L. 'Tinson' by breeder Ed Robinson.
