Martagon lilies do best in full sun but will tolerate some partial shade. They require a well-drained, neutral to slightly alkaline soil rich in organic matter, and should be planted in late fall, once the ground has cooled down to about 55 degrees, and night temps are hovering at about 40 degrees. After planting, they benefit from consistent moisture throughout the year. Deadhead spent flowers after flowering is finished. This species can take a little longer to get established than other lilies, but by year 2, they put on a spectacular display and will naturalize through bulb offsets. Periodic thinning and transplant in the fall may be required if your patch becomes too dense. After year one, they appreciate an application of organic granular fertilizer about 3 times a year. In fall, clear away the old foliage and, if you live in a cooler climate, apply a thin layer (no more than 2") of mulch.
