Description

Lilium ‘Hantsing’ is a Martagon Lily with deep scarlet red unspotted flowers in mid summer. It stands 4 feet high and bears 20 or more downfacing flowers on each stem and whorled leaves. The petals are curved backward, giving the flowers a Turks caps shape. Typical of the Martagon lilies, Hantsing does best in partial shade. The unsurpassed grace and beauty of this lily makes 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.
