MARTAGON LILIES are an elegant addition  to any shade
garden. The gracefully nodding stems bare from 20 to 50
downfacing blooms and thrive in dappled shade. Blooms can be a
rainbow of clear colors, spotted or marked. Martagons take some
patience to grow, often not emerging or blooming until the second
year. A gardener's patience is rewarded with a cascade of delicate
blooms each spring on stems with whorled leaves!  Unscented.
Martagon Lilies don't require staking.
