Tiger Lily: Lilium lancifolium, or tiger lily, is an ancient species. Most believe Tibetans or the Japanese were the original cultivators of this tall, orange lily and then spread across the ancient world.
Regardless of origins, the tiger lily is well-suited to the moderate USDA growing zones, well-adapted and adopted by many Americans. It grows in mixed sun and shade or full sun, reaching a mature height of around three feet. Don't be fooled by the regal appearance; this flower is relatively easy to grow and maintain.
TN Nursery customers use this lily in a garden border or as an ornamental to create a focal point in a formal garden--the bright orange flowers are undoubtedly worthy of such a place of honor.
The tiger lily emerges each spring from a bulb. The stalk is dark green, erect, and sturdy, despite a reasonably slender size. Tiger lily leaves are narrow, forming an elongated oval shape. The texture is smooth, and they have a green hue similar to the stem.
The most easily recognizable feature of the tiger lily is the orange blossom with dark chocolate spots. Of course, the orange and brown tiger-like color scheme lends the tiger lily its name.
Each large blossom opens to display six flamboyant petals, each with a graceful curve. The flower's centers are creamy white or yellow--and long--making the flower even more intriguing.
In most growing zones, the plants begin their annual growth cycle in late spring and blossom in the latter half of summer--late July or August.
The tiger lily might have an impressive look, but it's more low-maintenance than you might believe.
Plant your tiger lily bulbs in the fall or early spring, allowing a lot of space for bulb development. The tiger lily wants a healthy compost feeding in the early spring and a layer of woody mulch before winter. If your area receives rainfall once a week or so, you won't need to water it; however, it will need watering in drier climates.
TN Nursery will only dig your bulbs from our central Tennesse nursery after you place an order. This process ensures freshness. Order your tiger lily bulbs today.
