I was introduced to Martagons only in the past couple of years, but have really become a fan of these unusual lilies. It helps that they like dappled shade, of which I have an abundance, and that they are rock-solid hardy in Minnesota. It helps that bees and hummingbirds love them and frequent the blooms in my garden. It helps that Martagons are generally hybridized by enthusiasts, so that each plant seems to be a work of passion rather than a marketing gesture. And, lastly, it helps that the flowers are upside-down.
What’s not to love about a plant with upside-down blooms?
