We are pleased to introduce this new Hans Hansen bred Martagon lily (a Lilium hansonii hybrid) which has performed very well in our heat and humidity trials. H. 'Fort Knox' produces 4' tall flowering stalks of whorled green leaves, topped in late May and early June with 9-12 pendent golden-orange (RHS 23A) flowers, each highlighted by a small green center and darker purple spots toward the throat. Quantities are very limited.
