Description
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.
