PINK TURK'S CAP LILY, MICHIGAN LILY Lilium martagon
This popular flower produces many medium sized pink flowers with spots, that have curvy petals, and are held on strong stems! Plants are hardy and long lived. Each plant will have varying amounts of spots! Sometimes the Michigan Lily (which we also offer) and Turk's Cap Lily names are used interchangeably, but each is a different species.
Type: Hardy Perennial
Hardiness zones: 3-8
Location: Sun or part
Bloom time: Late spring and summer
Note: This plant species is known to have toxicity. Ingestion of these seeds or this plant can cause illness such as vomiting or diarrhea.
Seeds per pack: 10
Germination: As with many perennials, these seeds can benefit from a period of moist cold to help them grow. This is done by giving them a cold 'winter' period (artificial or natural), and then a warming to simulate 'spring', and time to grow! Here's how this can be done:
Obtain a planting container that has holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. Place the seeds just under the surface of your growing medium, and water. Place your container in a cold area (but not freezing, perhaps a refrigerator) for 5-6 weeks. Once the cold period is completed, place the container at room temperature for them to germinate. Be sure to keep the soil moist during this entire germination period. Seedlings will sprout a few weeks, or occasionally several months, after the warming period.
