Lilium lancifolium 'Flore Pleno' (Double Tiger Lily)

Double Tiger Lily, Lilium Tigrinum 'Flore Pleno', Double-flowered Devil Lily, Species & Cultivars of Species Group


A remarkable variety, Double Tiger Lily 'Flore Pleno' (Lilium lancifolium or Lilium tigrinum) commands our attention with its bright and showy, orange-colored double flowers, counting up to 24-36 tepals, and covered with profuse purple-black spots, giving the appearance of the skin of the tiger, hence its common name. Native of China and Japan, these Tiger Lilies are robust and easy to grow. Amazingly decorative, they are quite prolific as mature bulbs can produce up to 25 blossoms per stem and will multiply to form clumps over the years.

  • Blooming in late summer, they come back year after year and constitute excellent border plants, providing striking color and contrast to the perennial border and mix beautifully with annuals and other summer flowering bulbs. Their colors are at their loveliest next to ferns and/or hostas. They are well suited to containers and the cutting garden too (they can last up to 2 weeks in a vase).
  • Growing up to 4-6 feet tall (120-180 cm) on slender stems clad with dark green leaves, they are highly disease-resistant and perform best in full sun or part shade. Tiger Lilies are not fussy about soils, provided they are well-drained. Good moisture is required and dry soils should be avoided.
  • Plant in spring or fall. Plant in groups of 3 bulbs at a minimum for a striking display! When flowering is over, cut back leaves and stems after they turn yellow.
  • Toxic to cats (though not for dogs or any known species)
  • These Lilies are members of the Species and cultivars of species Division (IX) which includes all species and their subspecies, varieties and forms, and cultivars selected therefrom (excluding those derived from formosanum, longiflorum, philippinense and wallichianum). There are 9 different types of lilies classified by the Royal Horticultural Society. And they are all real eye-catchers!
