Very few flowers are as beautiful or more picturesquely coloured than Tigridia. Plant 7 cm (3”) deep, 10 cm (4”) apart, in rich well-drained soil.
The exquisite blooms of Tigrida ‘Alba Grandiflora’ flaunt three broad, pure white outer petals encompassing an intricate, cup-shaped centre of burgundy speckles. Also referred to as the Mexican Shell, Peacock or Tiger Flower, Tigrida are noted for their showy blooms and mesmerising markings. Much like Daylilies, each individual flower opens in full splendour for one day before fading, to be immediately replaced by a fresh flush the following morning. This continual production of new buds makes for a long-lasting, vigorous, plentiful display. Overwinter these half-hardy bulbs in a frost-free location for an encore performance next season.
Bearing lemon to custard-yellow flowers with exotic reddish markings in the centre.
The breath-taking blooms of Tigrida ‘Lilacea’ sport a trio of large, intensely pink outer petals encircling an elaborately embellished centre. The inner cluster of petals are borne in a hollow cup shape, drawing your eye towards mesmerising maroon markings. Like Daylilies, each individual flower flaunts its finery for a single day and then wanes, to be seamlessly succeeded by a fresh flush of blooms. This continual parade of unfurling buds provides a long-lasting, abundant show. ‘Lilacea’ makes a stunning container display for a sunny patio, conservatory, or greenhouse. Store these half-hardy bulbs in a frost-free location to enjoy their captivating blooms year after year.
