Coming from the age of love and flower power, in the 1960s, Lilium ‘Corsage’ has dazzled gardeners for over half a century. Up to 20 charming flowers can open on the strong, branching stems.
The majestic blooms are soft pink, fading to cream with a smattering of maroon spots and growing 10-15cm across.
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 abundantly through summer.
Tiger Lilies have stood the test of time, they were hybridised for gardens, not florists, this means they are both easy to grow and packed with flowers (florists need stems that fit in bunches).
Choose a humus rich, moist, well drained soil in a sunny location – half a day of sun is perfect. Liliums appreciate afternoon shade in warmer climates. Water in, and keep moist during active growth. To keep them blooming it is a good idea to add fertiliser and mulch in autumn and summer, as the bulbs are coming and going.
Simply plant 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.
