Use of Martagon lilies
To all you designers, I would like your opinions on using the Martagon lily in a woodland setting. I currently am designing some woodland properties. This must be the year of shade gardens for me! I have four going for this spring and I can't wait. I read an article about the Martagon lily being used in a woodland setting. The pictures in the article look to be in fairly heavy shade. It is planted with the usual fern and hosta and the trees appear to be quite dense. I don't want to suggest this to my clients if I'm way off base here but can this truly thrive in so much shade? I have mostly seen this in sunny areas. Any thoughts about the use of this plant is greatly appreciated.
