Tiger Lilies

My mother had a large area in our yard covered by these orange lilies. Known by many as tiger lilies these wild flowers are commonly found in ditches around America. Tiger lilies are grown by tuberous roots. They are made up of roots that have many medical purposes. Tiger lilies can help relieve congestion, nausea and vomiting in pregnancy.

To transplant tiger lilies simply dig up and separate  roots. This is done best in spring  or fall. Tiger Lilies are easy to grow. They are much at home in nature or in a flower garden it makes no difference. The lilies do not mind crowding and look the best when in bloom in a large, close together patch of bright orange flowers. Tiger Lilies prefer moist to wet soils and need little attention. NO need for fertilizer unless the soil is the poorest. They do not prefer fall / winter covering.
