Tiger lilies are invaluable border plants, long lasting and of easy culture. Their imposing spikes of richly coloured flowers are exceedingly effective.
Lily lancifolium ‘Splendens’, otherwise known as a Tiger lily, displays deep amber orange blooms flecked with glossy black, like a Tiger’s coat. Gracefully nodding on wiry stems of up to 120cm, the recurved petals are swept backwards, creating interesting silhouettes amongst your borders. Despite its exotic, delicate appearance, ‘Splendens’ is remarkably robust, dependable, and hardy. Flowering between July and August, these prolific producers can yield up to 25 blooms per bulb once established, naturalising readily to form generous swathes. Tiger lilies also make wonderful, long-lasting cut flowers, lending a unique form and colour to your arrangements.
