Description

 ‘Claude Shride’ is a very vigorous Martagon Hybrid Lilium, with partially recurved deep red flowers.

Great for cold areas!  Hard to source in Australia. Consequently, they are usually twice our price.

Claude Shride

 

‘Claude Shride’ was bred by Claude Shride in the USA in the 1970s and is still one of the best.

Martagon Hybrid Liliums are small but very beautiful Lilies. They flower here in late late November to early December here.

The only Martagon Hybrid Lily this year is ‘Performer’ which make an excellent companion. We do plan to have other Martagons once more in coming years.

Martagons like an open, near neutral soil (pH7) with plenty of organic matter. Plant 200-300 mm deep with good drainage. A good mulch will reduce moisture loss and help protect from harsh summer sun. Prefers some shade from the heat of the day.

Martagons originate from colder areas across northern Europe and Asia. Consequently, they will readily tolerate quite heavy frosts. To clarify, Martagons are very tough and will grow quite well in many warmer areas if planting depth, pH, shade and drainage needs are observed.
