I was somewhat skeptical when I saw these hybrids listed in a catalog and later on a commercial website of a reputable establishment. Always one to add "just one more" plant to my ever-expanding gardens, I ordered two of these along with several other oriental and trumpet types. My order arrived on May 6, 2006 by Fed Ex (they deliver on Saturdays), and by 4:00 PM they were all in the ground. I have never been sorry for adding this lily. Both of the bulbs I ordered grew well, although somewhat short at about 18-20". What they lacked in height, they abundantly made up for in blooms! It is everything I had read about or seen in print. It is an appealing addition to any garden setting.

I love these, They remind me of pictures of old gardens. I put some in in the very early spring, and they are fast growing and now blooming, and oh so beautiful. I am excited that they are going to multiply and I can have the in other places in the yard.

I have a plant that appears identical that I believe is a volunteer hybrid between asiatic hybrid lilies (a bag of hybridizers seconds) and the heirloom tiger lilies that have grown on this site since the 19th century.

It is hardy to at least zone 4. (-25F last winter)

I bought bulbs of this plant from Walmart this Spring, and although the bulbs came up in pots as two short plants, they never flowered, only produced brown bulbils in the leaf axils, which I collected and also potted up. So I'll have to wait until next year so see if it is truly a Pink Tiger.

I have grown Tiger Lilies for years, but have never seen this color, so I was disappointed, but at least the plants have survived this far. They will go into a raised bed this fall, because we usually get 60 inches of rain a year. But this year we will probably get more like 80 or 90 inches--I can't remember the last day it didn't rain here this Spring and Summer in Northcentral Florida, zone 8b.
