Tiger Lilies in Parkville

Several Tiger Lily plants in Parvkville are now flowering. There are several of them and all are still in pots waiting to get planted out somewhere. The flowers don't last long but are replaced quickly by new ones similar to Daylilies. One interesting thing about them is that they have aerial bulbs (bulbs that form above the soil level in the leaf axils) which are called bulbils. You can use these to propagate new plants, which is what we plan to do. The botanical name for Tiger Lilies is Lilium lancifolium. It is native to several Asian countries.
