I know there are a few interested in Martagon lilies here so I thought I'd just echo some links to images of this interesting double flowering cultivar. Of course these pages are in Swedish, but you can always use a translator or just look at the pictures. Lilium martagon f. fl.pl. ’Kallmora’ has smaller, hairier buds compared to the single flowering Lilium martagon.

Official site, this is an old cultivar (but the exact age is unknown, probably pre-1900 ) and it is going to be preserved in a gene bank but also going to be sold:

And a few additional pictures/info here from the vendors blog:
http://www.bulbs.se/?string=blog

There also appear to be a similar cultivar from Norway Lilium martagon ‘Flore Pleno’ and contrary to what the Swedish vendor claims in his blog this cultivar (or something similar) appears to be for sale in the USA, from tissue culture: http://www.thimblefarms.com/lilium.html . I don't know if this is the Norwegian cultivar or if there are several clones around (or if this US seller is reliable, as I obviously have never dealt with them).

If anyone has more info or corrections to add, please feel free to do so.

Thanks for posting. I've never seen a double martagon before - what strange beasts!

Those double marts look a lot nicer than those double oriental lilies which I dislike. Maybe it is because the blooms are much smaller.

As for me, the hose-in-hose style is still not to my liking. But look at the pedicel length and aspect, and the aspect of the flower!
It's valuable as a parent in breeding to introduce those characteristics.

Rick, from what's written 'Kallmora' is sterile and will not set seed. I'm unsure if it would be viable as a pollen parent.

I agree with pard, much nicer than those ugly double orientals!
