Mid Summer – Tiger Lily

The Asiatic Lilies are done and now the Tiger Lilies (lillium lancifolium) are just coming into flower along with the day lilies. This is only the second year I’ve had these blooming in my perennial bed but I’ve found them to be very hardy. They are rated for zone 2. These plants do best at the back of the border as they are quite tall – about 4ft.x1ft.- and would look better in clumps.  I think the only drawback to this plant is having to bend over to look up into the flowers!
