Head turning, cadmium red flowers with deep maroon to black freckles. The anthers are long and decorative.
The colourful, spotted petals of Tiger Lilies add an element of playful character to the garden palette. They are easy to grow and care for and bloom in abundance through summer.
Choose a humus rich, well drained soil in a sunny location – half a day of sun is perfect. Tiger Lilies appreciate afternoon shade in warmer climates. Water them in, and keep moist during active growth. Add some fertiliser (they love compost or manure) and mulch in autumn and summer, as the bulbs are coming and going.
Leave your Tiger Lilies in the ground to establish and they will bring you years of joy. You don’t need to lift the bulbs every year, simply divide them as they become overcrowded.
