We dig fresh our plants and ship immediately. We ship US Mail, Priority shipping. You will receive a tracking number once your plants ship. All plants will be fine in their packages for up to 3 days after receiving.
We sell only bare root plants. We dip the roots in tera-sorb silicone gel to retain ample moisture for transit and surround with plastic. This is superior protection for plants in transit for up to 12 days.
Open your plants and inspect the same day received. We offer 3 days to report any problems with your order. Bare root plants need to be planted within 2-3 days of receiving unless weather-related problems prohibit planting. Store in a cool place and keep roots moist and covered with plastic until they can be planted. Water for the first week daily after planting.
Turks Cap Lillies often called Martagon lilies, grow well in full sun, partial shade, and full shade. However, when grown in full shade, you will reduce the number of blooms. Turks Cap grows from a bulb, typically planted in the fall. The bulb is white, and new plants may sprout from the bulb. The plant contains seed pods with three lobes that are oval in appearance. The lobes contain stacks of thin, lightweight seeds that the wind can easily carry. Plants can also be grown from these seeds.
Turks Cap grows from four to six feet tall. Some as large as six inches long, the leaves grow in whorls on the stem and are lance-shaped. There are usually from three to nine, and they feel somewhat stiff. Other leaves can appear on the upper stem in pairs or alternating. Orange blooms dappled with purple are the most common type, although they can range from white to a deep burgundy.
The flowers grow above the leaves and are generally 2.5 to 4 inches wide with six sepals. The blooms and sepals curve and touch the stem forming a "Turk's cap," thus the name. Plants may have one bloom or as many as twelve. At the base of the blooms, some stamens are a half-inch or longer, and the stamens have anthers that contain pollen, ranging in color from reddish-brown to black. Turks Cap blooms do not produce a noticeable scent. Certain types of more giant butterflies mainly pollinate Turks Cap.
Turks Cap often grows in the wild and can be grown from Massachusetts to the southern Gulf Coast. They prefer moist, well-draining soil. Bulbs should be planted from 12 to 24 inches apart and 4 to 6 inches deep. Turks Cap blooms can be seen from early summer to the middle of summer, usually lasting about a month.
