MARTAGON LILIES
Martagon lilies are unique, stunning lilies that bloom in June. These lily cultivars are wonderful garden plants because of their ability to withstand a wide variety of garden soils, except extremely wet conditions, as well as preferring shade unlike most lilies. They make beautiful companions to hostas and part shade woodland perennials or shrubs. Most varieties grow 3 to 4 1/2 feet tall.
