Tiger Lily - L. tigrinum

Tiger Lilies attain a height of three to five feet. The botanical name is L. tigrinum. These magnificent blooms are orange with black or purple spots. The flowers are Turks Cap in shape and the bloom time is early to mid summer. The Tiger Lily requires full sun and thrives in acidic soil. The image below depicts a Tiger Lily.

Although they may be transplanted at any time I perform this task in the fall. Tiger Lilies require moisture while flowering. This wonderful bulb requires little maintenance yet provides showy flowers that are long lasting. After the leaves turn yellow you may cut the Lily plant back to a few inches above ground level.

Lilies create interest and beauty to your property. In the image below I have created and inviting walkway toward the back garden. Fragrant Lilies are situated adjacent to the side door and the pink blooms cascading toward the fence are Rose Campions (Lychnis coronario). Behind the evergreen are more Lilies, Daylilies, Climbing Roses, Miniature Roses, Peonies, Hydrangeas, Lamiastrum Galeobdolon 'Variegatum' False Lamium, Chameleon, and an urn with Variegated Geraniums.

In the image below my Lilies are beginning to fade however the Clematis is flowering, the Hydrangeas are blazing and the Daylilies take their rightful place in the summer garden. The Stachys byzantina (Lanata) Lamb's Ear and Rose Campion are toward the front of the bed. I transplanted a few Rose Campions and had a few Begonias leftover from a flat which fit in nicely to fill the gap.

The first Lily I planted was the Stargazer. The fragrant flowers grew approximately three feet high. The Stargazer Lily is referred to as a hybrid Lily from the Oriental Lily group. The image below depicts the beautiful blooms achieved from this easy growing plant. Success was easy with the Stargazer Lily therefore I quickly purchased more lilies for other garden beds.

In my opinion every gardener, beginner, novice and expert alike should plant lilies. Choose a shape and size suitable to your garden and purchase Lily bulbs this year. Every garden is enhanced with the fragrant bloom, the shapes are phenomenal and their dramatic appearance adds elegance to any setting. For the beginner gardener I advise planting Lilies, Roses, Hostas, Ferns, Peonies, Sedums and Hydrangeas.
