‘Shifting Sands’ is a vigorous Martagon Hybrid Lilium, with mauve/pink buds opening to recurved creamy flowers and mahogany spots.
Great for cold areas! Hard to source in Australia. Consequently, they are usually twice our price.
‘Shifting Sands’ was bred by Norgart Martschinke in Germany. It was grown, selected, named & introduced by Neil Jordan and is a Cam Lilies exclusive.
Martagon Hybrid Liliums are small but very beautiful Lilies. They flower here in late late November to early December here.
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.
