One of a range of newly introduced hybrid Martagon lilies that are in a class of their own. Easier to grow than the traditional ones, the colours are superb, and they often have up to 20 flowers per stem. This one has clusters of dark maroon fragrant flowers on tall stems each with curled back petals. Good for semi shaded site including the edge of woodland. 1m (3′) Traditionally not the easiest of lilies to get going, this new range is better and much more reliable, gradually building up to form decent clumps.
