What's up Tiger Lily? Demeter's version is sweet, bright medium-volume floral. These flowers are actually native to China and Japan. They flower in July and August; the bloom is orange color and spotted. It does not ripen seed but is propagated from the bulbs produced in the axils of the leaves which should yield flowering bulbs in three years from the time of planting-so if one wants tige Lilies, one must be patient.
