Lilium Martagon Alberta Morning

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



Small and delicate-looking, plum and white specked blooms, hang from the tall stems of Martagon lily ‘Alberta Morning’ during June and July. 

Originating from the Swiss Alps, these dainty-looking ‘Turk’s cap’ lilies are far tougher than they look – the bulbs will survive cold temperatures providing your soil is not waterlogged, naturalising in part-shade in the garden to re-emerge in early summer for decades to come.

Each candelabra-like stem carries up to 30 exquisite and exotic-looking, downward-facing flowers which need to be seen up close to be truly appreciated.

Care Guide

To cultivate lilies, choose a sunny spot with well-drained soil, digging a hole 15cm deep. Plant the bulbs 15-23cm apart, ensuring they sit 15cm below the soil surface. Water the surrounding soil well, maintaining soil moisture until growth emerges. Young shoots may be susceptible to slug damage, so use wildlife-friendly methods such as a top layer of sand to protect emerging growth. Most Lilies can also be grown in pots – ensure containers are deep and have large drainage holes in the base. As the majestic stems ascend, they will reach heights of 45-150cm, depending on variety. Support taller cultivars with stakes as they grow. Use dilute, balanced liquid plant feed every two weeks during the summer. Spray as soon as you notice the bright red lily beetle or their larvae.
