Lilium martagon - Martagon lily (Turk’s cap lily)

A tall Martagon lily may hold as many as 50 speckled turban-shaped flowers on its stem. The amount of speckles and the shade of its colour may vary between specimens even on the same stand. The Martagon lily is fragrant at night and attracts sphingids that feed on the nectar of its flowers. The Martagon lily tolerates full sun but apart from most other lilies, it also blossoms in the shade of trees and makes a perfect woodland species.
