Turk’s-Cap Lily

 

(Lilium martagon), also martagón lily, a perennial bulbous plant with drooping flowers. The bracts of the perianth are twisted and recurved toward the pedicel. The Turk’s-cap lily is found in Europe and Asia. In the USSR it grows in the European portion (forest and forest-steppe zones), in the Altai, and in Siberia (often classified there as the separate species L. pilosiusculum). The plant is found in the low and middle mountain zones and up to the subalpine meadows. The Turk’scap lily is an ornamental.
