Formerly known under the name Lilium tigrinum, the Tiger Lily is an eastern Asian plant that develops one to several deep purple stems between 1-5 feet tall, bearing slender leaves averaging 6-10 inches long all along the length of the stem. At the top, one to several nodding flowers are produced, up to 8 inches or more across with backward-curling tepals colored in brilliant shades of peach to orange with darker brown or black spotting. After blooming, seedpods may form, and/or the plants are capable of developing bulblets within the axils of their leaves, which can be detached to grow new plants.
Currently available are young offset bulbs averaging 0.5-0.75″ in diameter, two for quoted price.
Plants are shipped bare-root wrapped in a moist paper towel, via USPS Priority mail; I typically ship Monday-Wednesday to avoid weekend hold-overs. US shipping only. Many plants are grown in high humidity conditions and may require acclimation, unless otherwise noted. If you are expecting weather that may be detrimental to the plants if shipped, please message me upon making your order! This is a highly cold-tolerant bulb, capable of surviving deep freezes and should be unbothered by most inclement weather.
