Tigridia orthantha ‘Red-Hot Tiger’ - BSWJ10244

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
With the growing habit similar to the familiar tiger lily, arising from large tear-shaped resting bulbs with fleshy seasonal roots, forming neat fans of upright pleated strap-shaped leaves to 30cm long. But bearing dazzling red orange-yellow flecked flowers that are borne in succession on the terminal spikes just above the foliage for months from mid summer into autumn. Originating from one of our collections found growing in abundance in a Mexican forest on the moist mountains of Oaxaca in 2004 at a lofty 2800m. Easily grown in a moisture retentive but freely drained soil in either sun or shade. Mulch to protect from penetrating frosts in cold areas. (Syn. Rigidella)
