Lilium Martagon Var. Album
This is the lovely white form of this excellent plant, bearing pendent flowers with waxy, reflexed petals. It is an exceptionally easy, long-lived plant for the garden, multiplying up over the years. The occasional seedling may produce pink flowers.
Sow seeds at any time, covering them very thinly with compost or grit, keeping the seed pot in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination so be very patient as many species will only germinate in the spring after chilling or freezing in the moist seed pot in the winter. Grow on individual seedlings in small pots until of sufficient size to be potted on or planted out into the open ground.
Common name:White Turk's Cap Lily
