Tiger lily flowers (Lilium lancifolium or Lilium tigrinum) produce tall and showy flowers that you may remember from your grandmother’s garden. My grandmother always had the orange lilies. The tiger lily plant can reach several feet tall, and while the stems are usually sturdy, a slender stake helps provide an upright appearance and support for multiple flowers.
My lilies are almost done blooming for the season. If you look closely you can see a tiny insect. Not sure what it is called. The butterflies and hummingbirds enjoyed the blooms as always. I call them my dignified lilies. They are about the size of my hand. Very large blooms. They come in other colors and varieties but I prefer the red and yellow variety.
Sharing this bloom with Kim’s Color Crazy Challenge. Red is the color to share until July 28th. Anyone can join the challenge. Just make sure Color Crazy is in the title and the photo is red.
We should all paint Virily red! It is such a happy color.
Do you have what you consider dignified flowers and trees around you?
