Description

12-18" tall. Tiger Flowers (also known as Mexican Shell Flowers) are native to Mexico and Guatemala. As their botanic name Tigridia (meaning “tiger-like”) suggests, they will bring a rainbow of bright color to your mid-to late summer garden. Tiger Flowers are 3-6 inches wide with three single-color petals radiating alongside smaller patterned petals. The shell or tiger-patterned center contrasts with the simple petals creating a dramatic presence in the flowerbed. The foliage is pleated adding an extra dimension of interest. Hardy in zones 8-10, plant as annuals in cooler areas.

Plant Tiger Flower bulbs in the spring in a sunny, warm location. Growing to 12-18 inches tall, plant groupings throughout your perennial bed for maximum effect. Tigridia’s flowers last just one day, similar to a day lily, but its continuous parade of blooms will keep you in color for several weeks.
