For the sake of simplicity and lilies easily recognized as "Tiger Lilies", we have joined Martagon, Turk's Cap, Species, or any other lily that resembles Tiger Lilies into this category. We did this for you so you can radily locate them.
The true "Tiger Lily" is a wild lilium and taken from nature, making some on the endagered list. They are naturally grown in several locations in the Unied States and throughout the world (mostly China). Most have been hybridized (cross bred) with the wild natives or Asiatic lilies making them now very unique. Many of the lily species have the graceful pendant Turk's Cap flower type and will lend a graceful natural look to your garden space or they may even appear to resemble an Asiatic Lily until the petals fold backwards. Dedicated lily connoisseurs and collectors are helping perpetuate these "endanered" species lilies by incorporating them into old-fashioned "English Garden" settings, native plantings and in woodland gardens. Bulb sizes tend to be naturally small for most species, yet will perform well the first season from small bulbs.
