From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Species: L. martagon
Lilium martagon (Martagon or Turk's cap lily) is a species of lily. It has a widespread native region extending from central Europe east through northern Asia to Mongolia and Korea. Several subspecies have been named. The plant is stem-rooting, growing between 1 m and 2 m tall. The flower colour is typically a pink-purple, with dark spots, but is quite variable, extending from near white to near black. The flowers are scented. Numerous flowers are borne on a plant, and up to 50 can be found on vigorous plants.
The name Turk's cap lily, also applied to a number of other species, comes from the characteristic reflexed shape of one of the petals.

Thanks for posting these beautiful Lily that brings back memories of a walk on a meadow in the Voje valley near Triglav. Excellent capture with the nearest sharply in focus showing clear details and lovely colours. Nice background too.
TFS and regards, Ulla
