Amazingly decorative and easy to grow, Martagon Lilies make perfect partners with other plants and help create strikingly beautiful combinations in the garden. They welcome the company of neighboring plants such as annuals, perennials, bulbs, grasses or shrubs, however, a few rules need to be respected to ensure your Lilies will thrive.
Blooming in early - mid summer, Martagon Lilies come back year after year and constitute excellent border plants, providing striking color and contrast to the perennial border. They mix beautifully with annuals and other summer flowering bulbs and their colors are at their loveliest next to ferns and/or hostas.
Growing up to 3-6 feet tall (90-180 cm) on slender stems clad with whorled leaves, they are highly disease-resistant and perform best in full sun or part shade. Martagons are able to stand considerably more shade than most lilies, making them good plants for light woodland or between shrubs.
Martagons enjoy slightly alkaline, well-drained soils. Good moisture is required and dry soils should be avoided. Although it may take them a year to adjust to a new garden, once established, the Martagons will thrive for years.
