Light purple spotted black. Martagon Lilies are more modest than most other Lilies; these elegant hardy lilies are at home in semi shade planted near shrubs or in a meadow, with their turkscap flowers swaying on tall stems, one for the back of the border. From the first year of planting these beautiful lilies grow stronger and taller each year. Bulb top size.
Autumn Planting (Spring Flowering) bulbs are not available at present. They can be ordered from April. In the meantime, why not add your favourites to your wishlist ready to transfer to your shopping basket later?

Lilium should be planted on receipt; if it is not possible to plant they should be kept in cool conditions. Most lilies require full sun for most of the day but will take dappled shade for part of the day. A well-drained, sandy, rich soil with a little added humus is ideal. Lilium should be planted around 17-20 cm deep and around 30 – 40 cm apart. Plant Trumpet and Oriental varieties at around a depth of 20-25 cm for extra protection. Lilium grown in containers should be planted around 15 cm deep allow around 10-15 cm of soil above the bulb. Use JI No.2. Feed regularly with a good balanced fertiliser. Do not let bulbs get below freezing. When cutting the stems it is important to leave at least one third, this will help the bulb mature properly as the stem dies. See our special lilium planting guide for further information.
