GENERAL DESCRIPTION

Please Make Sure When Buying These Bulbs That You Don’t Buy Too Small A Bulb Or They Won’t Flower, They Will Only Throw Green Leaves And Take A Few Years To Flower These Bulbs Are A Very Good Flowerung Size Bulb.

“Tigridia” Is A Tender, Bulbous, Summer-Growing Perennial From Mexico And Central And South America. The Flamboyantly Flowered “Tigridia Pavona” Looks Magnificent In Gardens.

The Spreading Clumps Of Narrow Pleated, Sword-Shaped Leaves Form Fans. They Give Rise To Unbranched Flower Stems That Bear Clusters Of Short Lived Flowers In Summer. The Flowers Are Of Exotic Beauty, Each One Lasts For Only A Day But A Succession Appears For Several Weeks At The End Of The Summer. The Colours Are Marvellous. The Orange, Yellow, Pink, Brown, Blue, Purple, Or White Blooms Are Triangular With Three Spreading Outer Petals And Three Smaller Inner Petals. The Inner Petals Often Bear Bold Contrasting Blotches.

These Cold-Tender, Sun-Loving Plants Grow Best In Fertile Well-Drained Soil. They Do Best With Relatively Moist Summers And Dry Winters. Plants Grow From Bulbs That Produce Offsets, Eventually Forming Large Clumps. They Should Be Divided Every Few Years To Maintain A Relatively Compact Clump. Use Them In Borders, Cottage Gardens And Containers.

These Lovely Flowers Are Worth The Effort Of Finding Somewhere To Plant The Bulbs. They Like As Much Sun As Possible As This Not Only Encourages Flowering But Also Ripens The Bulb To Ensure A Similar Display The Following Year.

Plant 10 Cms (4”) Deep In Late Spring For Summer Flowering And Can Be Dug Up Again In Autumn For Storing In A Dry Frost-Free Place For The Winter.

The Bulbs Are Grade 1 And Are Dormant At The Moment. They Will Flower This Year.
