These low maintenance plants are a fantastic addition to most home gardens.  Below I listed a few fun facts that will inspire you to add these to your collection of Lilies.  The spectacular bring orange blooms with tiger spots will light up any full sun landscape.  If you plant the bulb in the right soil you can get up to a dozen new bulbs each year.  Here are my favorite facts about the plant:

  • The Tiger Lily grows up to 2-5 feet tall and can bloom for well over 3 weeks.
  • The bulbs grow well in just about any type of soil including clay, loam, and sand.
  • The Tiger Lily makes the perfect addition to any cut flower arrangement.
  • Disease resistance and the deer will stay away from this plant.

Growing Tiger Lily in Your Home Garden

The Tiger Lily bulbs are a member of the Lilium family.  It is best to grow the plant in groupings of 3 bulbs per hole about 7 inches deep in the soil.  Add the bulbs to your early spring planting lists.  These bulbs can be planted at the same time as the allium bulbs and iris tubers.  I have seen this variety planted with a low growing Russian sage and Anemone which look amazing together.  Below I have included a few important growing tips about the Lily.

  • hardy in zones 3-9
  • perennial – bulbs
  • member of the Lilium lily family
  • summer (mid to late) interest in the garden

I feel in love with these years ago in my first garden.  After seeing how amazing these are doing in my neighbors garden I am adding these to my list to plant for next years cut flower collection.
