Head turning, cadmium red flowers with deep maroon to black freckles.
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.
Tiger Lilies have stood the test of time, they were hybridised for gardens, not florists, this means they are easy to grow and very floriferous. These beauties have modern breeding with improved disease resistance and flowering time. The flowers open from midsummer and last well in both gardens and vases.
Simply plant, your Tiger Lilies, fertilise and enjoy. Leave them in the ground to establish and they will bring you years of joy.
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.
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.
