36" tall (2-3 feet), Martagon Lily Sunny Morning features striking recurved petals in golden-orange speckled with burgundy spots. The recurved, downward-facing petals create a unique display, perfect for borders, walkways and containers. This Lily loves any sunny spot and blooms in early to mid-summer. Sunny Morning prefers moist but well-drained soil. Returning year after year, this lily attracts butterflies in spades and is beautiful when cut for arrangements..
The name 'Turk's Cap' is used to describe any lily with sharply recurved petals that create a sort of 'hanging lantern' shape. It's always been thought to resemble a turban, or 'Turk's cap.' (The common name is applied to a totally different, orange No. American lily too, since it has a similar flower form.)
But 'Lilium martagon' from Europe is the one that has been the ancestor for a whole host of multi-colored hybrids. But forget them. The original can be a true spectacle in your garden.
Compared to other species, this lily has smaller flowers, but it makes up for the flower size by putting up strong stems with up to 50 flowers per stalk! Once established, your Martagon Lily can form a huge clump and result in what may be the biggest spectacle in your garden every season.
The Martagon Lily is a must for any wild plant collector's garden.
Like many wildflowers, this species has been over-picked and over-collected in the wild in its native range. You can be assured that our bulbs are nursery-cultivated in Holland.
