Plant Information

Like most Asian species lilies, this old reliable was a staple in the Oriental diet for centuries. The bulbs were, and still are, cooked for foods and soups. Yet it’s not the taste that made this lily bulb world famous, it’s the beautiful flowers and the ease of growing them.

The true Tiger Lily is native to Korea, but today gardeners throughout the world enjoy the beautiful, big flowers that return year after year. In fact, Tiger lilies are now so common in the US, many people think they're native.

Orange Tiger Lilies are extremely easy to grow and will come back year after year even in some of America’s coldest climates, as long as you have well draining soil.

This lily has little black 'bulbils' (baby bulbs) that form up and down the stem in the leaf axils. These little bulbs drop to the ground naturally, and spring up the next year as baby tiger lily plants. Over the years, you'll have an expanding clump.

This is the perfect no-maintenance lily to add to your flower border or wildflower meadow. A few towering lilies over a wild meadow in full bloom is a spectacular mid-summer sight.

ABC LILY PHOTO Spectacular lilies for your garden; it's easy. Everybody loves lilies, and today's hybrids are a snap to grow, unlike some of the more difficult ones of the past. Today's favorites are no more work than growing a tulip or daffodil.

Tiger Lilies. This group is led by the famous old orange wild lily, which used to be called Lilium tigrinum. Botanists have changed that to Lilum lancifolium, but that doesn't stop most people (including us) from using the old name 'tigrinum.' From the original orange, the hybridizers have created new colors from white to pink. All have the large flowers, black spots, and tough perennial qualities of the original. (By the way, don't call any old spotted orange lily 'tiger lily'. This one is the real thing, and no lily common name is more mis-used.)

Trumpet Lilies Sometimes called 'Aurelian Hybrids' or other names, the large, tall trumpet lilies are all descended from The Regal Lily, a white wild species lily from China. All are incredibly fragrant, and wonderful for cutting. They grow tall, and often need staking, since a well-grown stalk can have over 15 huge flowers.

      Comments about American Meadows Tiger Lily Bulbs Orange:

      The Tiger Lillies pictured were orange with black specs. Just what we had been looking for as they reminded us of ones my husband's grandmother had when he was growing up. While they bloomed nicely, they were simply orange lillies. No specs of black. The reason we bought them. Not planning to buy other products because of this experience.

      Comments about American Meadows Tiger Lily Bulbs Orange:

      This was their first year, so I'm withholding my final verdict until next year. On the plus side, they arrived on time, were healthy and were easy to plant. On the negative side, they weren't quite what we were looking for, which was the "traditional" tiger lillies that you see a lot around eastern Missouri.

        I planted these bulbs with other lilies on a slope that gets lots of sun. I was very pleased with their performance, especially this first year. I'm looking forward to even better performance and growth next year.

        None of these came up this year

        from Houston, TX

        Comments about American Meadows Tiger Lily Bulbs Orange:

        I bought these from here before and they were lovely. But the ones that they shipped this year did not come up at all. I planted the bulbs immediately. I do not know if the bulbs were defective or if it was due to the strange weather this year.

        USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

        To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

        • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
        • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
