Martagon lily!! No better garden pleasure than that.
I don’t remember planting any here, but am motivated to add more now 😊

Martagon lilies are absolutely beautiful flowers Cathy especially the white flowering ones 😂 Why was this particular pleasure unexpected?
I have no recollecton of planting any here, Anna!! I did plant some in the blue & white border some years ago, which came up a couple of times but they didn’t really perform and eventually disappeared. I am tempted to plant more here in the woodland edge border, seeing these. The leaves are rather nibbled but the flowers are gorgeous!
Aaaaaaah – I’m with you now Cathy. What a marvellous surprise 😀 xxx
Indeed it was 😊😊😊

my martagon lily is extremely temperamental and disappears for whole years, or some years only manages a few feeble leaves and no flower. I’ve got it in a pot… perhaps I should plant it out in a border and see if it will surprise me! This one is gorgeous, I didn’t know white ones were available.
That’s interesting to hear that you find them temperamental. I really don’t remember planting any here but I have just moved a cast iron ‘urn’ which could possibly have been above where the bulb was… 😉
