Tiger Lillys

edspanglerApril 2, 2013

Greetings, I posted this question on a different forum and was told that Tiger Lillys are not a "Native Plant" , I did not know that, since it appears they are "Asian" in origin, I hope I have the right place to post my question (s) .
In a couple weeks I will receive several Tiger Lilly Bulbs ,I am going to be planting them in an old Washtub with holes drilled in bottom and on sides next to bottom . for drainage, I will place a small layer of gravel in bottom to aid in drainage, Then I will fill the tub with Miracle Grow " Moisture Control" soil.
Where I need help is from this point forward, what how should I feed / fertilize the Tiger Lillys. Any and all advice greatly appreciated!! Please respond by email so I can print and use the advice!!
Thanks!!

It might be Asian as I saw Tiger Lillys in Myanmar in a place called Pyin Oo Lwin. Actually these are old gardens constructed by the British lone time a go.
But it may explain the conflict.

I think the orange tiger lilies are native to my area in Georgia since some have come up in a few places. No one has lived on this land for hundreds of years. I was told it was lived on by slaves, so i doubt they had the money for imported flower bulbs.
