|I have the following bulbs on order for fall delivery. |
Martagon Lily Bulbs for sale for fall delivery! Martagon lilies are cold climate lilies that do best with a long cold winter resting period. Martagons are more expensive because they are slower growing and they may even sulk for a year before even emerging from the ground. They need to establish a good root system before sending up a bloom stalk and prefer alkaline soil. I do not recommend trying to grow in zones higher than Zone 6. They are shade tolerant but also can grow in full sun. They make an excellent companion to the hosta garden as they bloom earlier than most other lilies. At maturity they should get 5 feet or taller. USA shipping only!
Martagons do best when planted in the fall. Spring planted martagons do not bloom the first year.
Shipping is $8.00 for up to 15 bulbs (add $2.00 when shipping is west of the Mississippi River).
Shipping should be the first two weeks of October. ALL VARIETIES ARE LIMITED. ONCE THEY WERE SOLD OUT, I MAY NOT BE ABLE TO GET ANYMORE.
You may start on order now and I will be posting more as the summer goes along. Payment is due August 15.
PLEASE DO NOT ADD THESE PHOTOS TO THE DATABASE AS i DO NOT OWN THESE IMAGES.
As with any “crop”, they are subject to crop failure. You will either be offered a substitute or a cheerful refund should this happen.
Place order by emailing me at email@example.com
Black Prince $36.00
Bronze Beauty $30.00

This statement saddens me as I really wanted to add these to my garden. But you've saved me lots of heartache. Gorgeous! Just gorgeous!

|Same here! I'm in 7a. Maybe I'm enough on the border of the zones to give them a try. We had a cold winter, with snow and plenty of below freezing temps, but I think it was a weird year.|

|In my opinion, you need three months of frozen ground to successfully grow martagons. I have a customer on Long Island which is 7a and can grow them but you need the ground to freeze.|

|Not sure that I had three months of frozen ground. I just spent my first winter here, so maybe I'll wait a year and see how next winter is, and pay more attention! Thanks for the info, which is most appreciated!|

|Wow, those are gorgeous Lilies! I really love Attiwa and Black Prince. I'm having severe zone envy here but I'd have to move farther north ... much farther north to be able to grow those beauties! |

|I may try to grow a lily, I like the look of those so much. |
For all you Z6+ people with zone envy, I'm trying really hard to be sympathetic. ;) Now you know how I feel when I see brugmansias in the ground, etc.
