About Tiger Lilies: Tiger lily is one of the best summer flowering plants, and some verities are perennial plants. Many varieties are dense, fortune, splendens, flore-pleno, and more. All the verities are easy to grow with minimum caring. The scientific name of tiger lily is Lilium lancifolium, and it comes with the Liliaceae family.
Tiger lily is native-born in China, Japan, Korea, and Russia, or native-born in north America. Over time, tiger lily plants have been seen in many countries.
Over time plants grow up to 2 to 5 feet and spread up to 8 to 12 inches. The plant’s leaves are soft and green in colour, and the branches are also dark green. There is a white wrinkle on the branches. Many flowers bloom at a time, and these flowers are different in colours like pink, yellow, purple, blue, and red. Each flower has a dark spot or a dark spot depending on the verities.
How to Plant its bulbs: We can’t grow tiger lily using the cutting method, but the easiest way to grow is by using its bulbs. When you purchase its bulbs from an online or local nursery, then always check sprout part is also available or not.
If the sprouting part is not available, then don’t buy it because those bulbs do not germinate or sometimes take lots of time to germinate. Always buy large bulbs.
Prepare a Soil Potting & Planting: To make a good soil mixture, take well-drained garden soil (40%), sand (30%), vermicompost (20%), and peat moss (10%). Mix it well and take a large flower pot (at least 12 to 15 inches). Fill the soil mixture in the flower pot and take out its bulbs. Dig holes 5 to 8 inches deep, put bulbs into holes, and cover the bulbs with soil mixture.
Sprout parts should be up and visible. Give water properly and keep the flower pot in full sunlight. There is no need to place flowers indoors or semi-shaded because bulbs are germinated.
Remember: USDA hardiness zone should be 3 to 8 and the soil mixture should be slightly acidic. Ensure that drainage holes are available on the surface of the flower pot. If there are no holes, make 5 to 8 holes (by doing this, the soil air should be removed).
Within 15 to 18 days, new leaves and branches appear from the plants, and leaves grow up to 2 to 3 inches. Over time leaves and branches grow up to 4 to 8 inches.
Top 4 Caring Tips :
Watering: Watering is important for every plant. During the summer season, keep well moisture in the soil potting. Give water twice during the winter season. For watering, always use a water spray gun. Don’t overwater.
Temperature: Well, temperature gives the best result. In the summer season (March to May), give at least 5 to 6 hours of sunlight, and during the winter season (November to February), place the plants in full sunlight. For best results, always maintain the temperature between 15°C to 25°C.
Best Fertilizer: Over time, plants need fertilizer for their growth. Tiger lily plants need NPK and vermicompost. Give fertilizer before the growing season or after 30 to 45 days after fertilization gives water correctly.
Pests & Disease: If any insects (aphids, bugs, fungus) are attacking the plants, then always use pesticide liquid to kill them.

Bloom Time: Flowers start to bloom on this plant during the summer season; after planting, flowering starts within 3 to 4 months. Flowers look attractive due to their fragrant smell. Each flower has 5 to 6 petals with a different shade. Each flower (petals) has a dark spot. The stamens have the same colour as the flower colour.
Poisonous: Tiger lilies are toxic to cats, so keep them away from plants.
