Martagon: st. l 1/2 - 3 ft. high, furrowed or striated: leaves 100 or more, lower ones horizontal, 2-4 in. long, 1/6 - 1/3 in. wide, upper ones smaller and more erect: flowers 1-15, l 1/2 - 2 in. diam., brilliant scarlet, dotted purplish black; segms. thick and waxy, reflexed to the st. and thickly papillose at the base; anthers scarlet. June, early July. Alps of S. France and N. Italy. —A graceful handsome species of easy culture, but the strong, nauseous odor of the flowers is a factor against its popularity. The var. verum, Hort., is similar, but the leaves, when first unfolding are twisted or curled like a sickle and slightly edged white. CH
