Splendens Lily

Availability: Out of stock

Brilliant orange blooms spattered in black freckles add intrigue to your garden! The Splendens Lily (Lilium 'Tigridium Splendens') may look like a typical Tiger Lily at first glance, but you'll appreciate the shorter, more compact growth and larger flowers that this variety features!

Boasting brilliant orange blossoms and backward curving petals, these enormous nodding flowers wave atop slender stems and feature multiple flowers per stem! The long spray of stamen are perfect for Pollinators to hold on to while they collect pollen. With a mild fragrance and multiple stems on mature bulb clumps, you'll enjoy bouquets of striking blooms!

Tiger Lilies' long slender stems are completely covered in short, bright green lance-shaped foliage. These award-winning blooms are slender, tall and sturdy to hold aloft the sprays of large flowers. You'll be delighted by the shiny black bulbils that form along the stems.

Planting and Application:

Reaching upwards of 3 - 4 feet tall and forming compact clumps, Tiger Lily colonizes small areas without becoming aggressive and overtaking, nor jumping their borders and growing where they aren't wanted. Their slim profile is perfect for tucking clusters into existing Perennial and Cottage gardens, grouped in mixed planters and containers, or in long winding rows as edging or meandering through Cutting Gardens and Pollinator borders.

Blooming all summer until frost, Splendens are long-lasting in the vase! These cheerful blooms brighten any room and any mood. Butterflies and beneficial pollinators stop by for a visit, and if you are lucky, they also attract hummingbirds!
