I have a Tiger Lily that was recieved at the Ft. Worth swap. Where do I plant it sun or shade and what does it look like? It has little black seeds in the middle now hopefully those are buds.

RE: WANTED: Tiger Lily @Ft. Worth swap

HI Phyllis - better late than never, huh? I saw this one description that sounds right:

A lily species from China and Japan.

Has long, lance shaped mid to deep green leaves borne on dark stems which are sometimes hairy. Bears reddish orange, pendant, unscented, turkscap (petals strongly recurved) flowers, spotted with purple. Also forms small bulbils in the leaf axils on the upper part of the stems which are quite easy to propagate.

Flowers July - September

Loves moist but well-drained, neutral to acid soil in sun or light shade. It will tolerate slightly alkaline soils and will happily form a clump in the right conditions.
