Head turning, cadmium red flowers with deep maroon to black freckles. The anthers are long and decorative.
New Age Tiger Lilies are hardy cultivars with bright, colourful flowers. The flowers open from mid summer and last well in both gardens and vases. In creating these Lilies, breeders have taken beloved heritage varieties and made them better, stronger and more disease resistant.
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 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 only when they become overcrowded.
