We begin shipping forest roots after they go dormant, around the end of September.  Feel free to pre-order these live dormant roots.  First come, first served.

Lily, Tiger (Lilium tigrinum) potted plant, organic

$7.50

Family:  Lily (Liliaceae)

Zones 4 to 8

(Bai-he, Chinese Tiger Lily)  Perfectly cold-hardy herbaceous perennial.  Native to China and Japan. Large, ornate, orange and black, pendulous flowers with showy stamens. Better in my opinion than any of the fancy selections, this is a very old cultivar.  Traditional usage (TCM):  for treating gynecological woes.  Plant prefers part shade and moist, rich soil. Protect bulbs from burrowing marauders.  Space plants 1 foot apart. Flowers to a height of 3 to 4 feet.

These are 2-year-old plants grown from aerial bublets–they have formed the corm, we’re just trying to keep them short enough to enable shipping.

Potted plant, certified organically grown
