'L. martagon x 'Cadense'' - Species Lily Bulb
Item# L4401

Lily Bulb Description

Classification: Martagon Hybrid Lily (USDA Zones 3-10, lows to -40° F.)

Lily Bulb #L-4401 - Spring 2004 Introduction - Native to Europe, established colonies produce numerous, tiny reflexed, pale yellow flowers, with darker gold edges. These graceful beauties have only a few, larger accent spots of brownish-maroon covering the inner two-thirds of each petal. Flowers tend to be more outfacing, rather than pendant, nice to view up close. Up to 20 blooms per stem on established bulbs.

Provide perfect drainage, top dress with humus and don't over water the bulbs during summer, while they are in dormancy. 3 to 5 Feet. June. More difficult to establish than our Asiatic, Trumpet or Oriental lilies, small bulbs transplant best; all Martagon lilies are guaranteed to be healthy and true-to-name, but not for failure to grow. May take several seasons before blooming and conditions need to be more exacting.

Bulb Size - Varies from that of shelled filbert nut to as large as our Asiatic Hybrid lilies, bulb size is subject to growing season and harvest. Smaller bulbs tend to establish easier, larger bulbs may put up more flowers first year, but is not guaranteed as these bulbs are very close to the original species.
