Lily martagon Claude Shride

This 1970s hybrid has dark mahogany-red flowers with intermittent, small red orbs encircled in vibrant golden-orange and a dark orange base. A floriferous garden variety once established and mature, butterfly-beloved L. martagon Claude Shride is best planted in the fall. It requires well-draining soil that is not humus-rich because it cannot tolerate getting wet feet. It prefers full to partial sun with its flowers and foliage in the sun, and its lower stalk in the shade. It likes it dry over the summer and hates any sort of root disturbance once planted. It may even hold off flowering the first year until it is well established. Once mature, it may yield 40+ flowers per stalk, like so many little hanging presents with fancy bows. Lily Class: Martagon (and Heirloom Species). Bulb size: 14/16 cm. June. HZ: 3-8. 3' to 4'.
