Double Tiger Lily

Availability: Out of stock

Need a summer flowering spectacle for your garden and patio planters this year? Then you need the incredible Double Tiger Lily (Lilium lancifolium 'Flore Pleno') for speckled orange blooms that have layer upon layer of backward curving, slender petals! Like a pompom of color, these are insanely dramatic blossoms for your summer enjoyment!

Dangling atop tall stems, summer flowering Tiger Lily blooms and their freckled faces have multiple buds per stem and a fringe of strappy green leaves along the entire length. With a clump of more leaves at the base of these space-saving bulb plants. Butterflies and hummingbirds will flock to your garden with these lovely blooms waving in the breeze!

Tiger Lilies are unique in that they not only multiply underground, forming tall, slender clumps, but also little black 'bulbils' (baby bulbs) that form up and down the stem in the leaf axils. These little bulbs will drop to the ground naturally and will spring up the next year as baby Tiger Lily plants. Hardy throughout USDA growing zones 3 through 8, these ornamental perennial bulbs come back bigger and better every year!

Planting and Application:

Standing an impressive 24-48 inches yet only spreading to about 6-8 inches wide, these are ideal back-of-the-border accents and specimen plants! The unique double bloom is sure to stand out among the other perennial garden flowers! Add some modern flair to cottage gardens, and some curiosity to pollinator gardens. Watch your butterflies become green with envy as they are upstaged by these starry explosions of color!

Even large container gardens and planters can enjoy these flouncy blooms! Add in groupings as the feature among spillers, or as the tall focal point among mixed planters, either way, Double Tiger will turn heads! No garden necessary! Porch and patio pots, balcony gardens and even that narrow strip along a path or walkway in the sun can house these whimsical blossoms! Imagine what a single one of these incredible double blooms will do to a bouquet!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Tiger Lilies like their roots in the shade and their face in the sun so love being planted behind other perennials for that wow in your garden! The tall stems do appreciate staking to keep them upright in storms and wind. Plant these bulbs in about any well-drained soil with moderate moisture and fertility.

Deadhead after bloom but leave the foliage until frost so they can make food for the bulbs, then prune to the ground when they die back in late autumn. To ensure even moisture, you can place mulch around the base of the flower. Adding mulch can also add a dramatic effect on the overall physical appearance!

  • Full Sun & Partial Shade
  • Well-Drained Soil
  • Moderate Moisture Needs
  • Deadhead After Bloom & Prune Back Late Autumn
  • Mulch Beds Well

Enjoy bountiful curvy petals and speckled blooms with the bright orange Double Tiger Lily from Nature! Quality bulbs delivered to you at the right planting time!
