I always have one or two of my martagons rebloom in the fall. If to late the frost hits them.

One surprise coming with cooling temperatures is that a Lilium martagon in the garden, which had flowered in late spring as usual and withered, has sent up a second scape and opened some flowers. I've never had a lily species do this before. Has anyone else seen such behavior?

My plant's flowers are not what I could call "orange," but they are different from the usual pink or white shades, being a sort of muddy buff. Not a gem, but certainly an eccentric.
