Species lilies, also known as Tiger Lilies, are wild lilies, native to North America, Europe, and Asia. Delicate and full of charm, there are 80 - 100 accredited Species. Most species lilies do not require specialized care and will naturalize themselves very well. They are very adaptable to most soil conditions and environmental conditions, and they do quite well in warm, moist climates with fertile soil. Tiger Lily bulbs for the most part are smaller than hybrid varieties, but will produce good quality stems and a lot of blooms. Their delicate, beautiful flowers are quite showy and most will bloom for long periods compared to other lilies.
Lilies are incredibly easy to grow and few garden pests trouble them. The most natural location for lilies is on sloping ground with excellent drainage. Lilies prefer to have their blooms in the sun and their roots in the shade. Try planting them among annuals or perennials that will keep their roots cool.
The general rule of thumb for planting spring bulbs is to plant two to three times as deep as the bulb is tall. This means that some of our larger Bulb-Zilla lily bulbs will need to be planted 6-8 inches deeps. Plant with the roots downward and the scales upward. After planting, water well two or three times. Lilies are most effective when planted in groups of three or more. Space them about a foot apart – they will spread and fill this space in no time!
Always allow the leaves on the stalk to turn yellow and fall off as part of the lily’s natural growth process. This ensures that the bulbous underground part of the plant has gotten enough nourishment and will mean greater growth next year. Each year watch their beauty increase as they multiply!
The bulbs were healthy and the new blooms were picture worthy the first year!
Bareroot plants looked ok, but horrible customer service.
Horrible, I was contacted that what I ordered was no longer available due to winter damage but selected replacements. I got my replacement bulbs but they were not very big like the site promised and I never got my free bulb for every 50 dollars spent. I contacted customer service, and got excuses and was told they were no longer doing free bulb due to limited supply despite promise. They took forever to respond due to being in a flower show despite promising on their site that they pride themselves on customer service and that they get back to you right away. It was a horrible experience purchasing online with them and I would never use them again. Plenty of other Lily Bulb Farms out there.
The Tiger Lilies are growing well but have not bloomed yet. I'll get back to you.
It has been planted but hasn’t come up and bloomed yet so I can’t give a review at this times
