A haven for butterflies and pollinators, this captivating and romantic lily is one for the wildlife-friendly garden and makes a fantastic, long-lasting cut flower.
Enchanting Martagon lily ‘Sunny Morning’ produces bountiful stems of downturned orange-yellow blooms, splashed with burgundy-red spots and markings.

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.
