According to the grower, living in the West Frisian village Andijk, Claude Shride is the most solid Lily for the garden. He calls her an ‘everybody’s friend’, she grows everywhere. Even in full sun she performs, according to the grower, just as well as in the shade. I do not know if this is true, in my garden all varieties perform well in half shade. But Claude Shride does stand out with her delicious wine-red colour. The highlight of the garden in June. For more information: Lilium martagon.
