Lilium ‘Claude Shride’ has dark-red flowers with yellow-orange spots and no fragrance. The flowers face downward, and the deeply recurved petals bend backward forming a Turk's cap. The stem has whorled leaves and can reach a height of 4 to 6 feet. This is a Martagon lily that grows well in woodlands and is most adapted to shade. The unsurpassed grace and beauty of this lily make it a lovely addition to the garden. Lilies love full sun but will do well in partial shade. They tolerate hot summer days, as long as the bulbs are deep enough to remain cool. Lower plants surrounding the lilies will help protect their roots from drying out. Lilies make an excellent cut flower with long-lasting blooms and buds that continue to mature and open after cutting.
