Description

My favourite of all the Martagon type, Turk’s cap lilies in the richest, deepest crimson. This variety will hold court over its dappled shady corner for a good 4-6 weeks. We had it in the Oast Garden with Eremurus, which you can see here in the background. They were both truly regal.

Care Tips

Likes a cool root run. Plant in borders or in a pot sunk into the ground which can be lifted out of the wet and cold until the following spring. Plants may be affected by lily beetle, so keep your eyes peeled!
