Is there a lily that would do good on the east side of my house getting mostly morning sun? Martagon lily maybe?

I have a few martagons with some ferns on the north side of my house. They seem to do fine.

Martagons will do just fine with eastern exposure. They do well with a northern exposure too, like Tracey noted. I had asiatics that did fine with eastern exposure as well.
