Martagon lily captures CO2 permanently

As you may have read in an earlier article, all lilies store a lot of CO2. One of the top performers in this area is the martagon lily. Martagon lilies are actually perennials that create an underground food reserve in the form of bulbs. These bulbs contain a high farina content which contains a large amount of bound CO2. Because the bulbs of martagon lilies normally continue to grow*, there is permanent CO2 storage in the bulbs. In addition, the martagon lily has the quality that it produces a lot of seeds after flowering, which germinate easily and form new bulbs, so that more and more martagon lilies will grow in the garden or in park plantings, which in their turn will permanently store CO2.

The martagon varieties have retained their natural resilience and can be used by every enthusiast in the world without special cultivation measures. Because they are not F1 hybrids, natural crossings in your garden or in a park plantation also result in a rich variety of colors and properties. Through natural selection, the strongest offspring will adapt to their new habitat over the years.

In the Netherlands, the duck decoy on Texel has martagon lilies that were planted there more than 100 years ago that still bloom, seed and multiply every year.
