Lilium Martagon Sunny Morning

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



Enchanting Martagon lily ‘Sunny Morning’ produces bountiful stems of downturned orange-yellow blooms, splashed with burgundy-red spots and markings.

The small, delicate looking flowers are surprisingly tough, as these plants originate from mountainous meadow areas of the Swiss Alps – they therefore thrive in a cooler climate and the bulbs  withstand cold winters.  Grow Martagon lilies in humus-rich, well-drained soil in a position in part shade and they will thrive and naturalise readily in the garden.

Plant extra bulbs to ensure you have enough to spare for cutting, as the stems make wonderful, unusual cut flowers.

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.
