Product Description ( Lilium Pink Flight )
Outfacing flowers are deep coral pink and have red anthers for emphasis. It was bred in 1971 and is marketed by the Lily Company BV (Holland). The long flower stalks are well spaced along the tall stems. It blooms in mid-July. The flowers are down-facing and have no scent. The Pink Flight lily is an Asiatic Hybrid Lily (Tiger lily), which is native to China, Japan and Korea. It measures 120 cm in height. The name of the variety sounds like 'Pink Flight' in translation.
Tiger lilies (Lilium lancifolium or Lilium tigrinum) are perennial bulbous plants that can reach up to 75-150 cm in height.
They were first described by the famous Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus in 1753.
The name 'tiger' probably refers to the dark purple or black spots on the petals.
There are two varieties: Oriental Tiger Lilies (Lilium lancifolium or tigrinum) - propagated by bulbs that form in the leaf axils (or by division) and Wild Tiger Lilies (Ditch Lily) - propagated by tuberous roots.
Tiger lilies are fascinating with their large, fiery orange flowers with dark mottling. You may well remember them from your grandmother's garden, where they were lost amongst the peonies and lilacs.
Today, largely nostalgic lilies have been supplanted by newer hybrids with distinctive colouration.
Oriental tiger lilies used to be grown as a food crop in the East. All thanks to their edible bulbs, which taste like our potatoes.
In the west, they were planted in perennial gardens, as ornamental plants.
These plants are winter-hardy and unpretentious.
The flower-bearing stems are usually stiff and tough.
They are capable of producing up to ten flowers per stem. The flowers grow in masses at the top of a single stem.
The flowers can be simple or tigers (Lilium lancifolium flora-pleno).
Simple tiger lilies consist of six stamens, one pistil. The anthers are large and highly visible.
The sepals are spectacularly curved.
The flowers are tepals, which can reach up to 8-15 cm in diameter.
Orange is the dominant flower colour, but there are also yellow, white and red varieties of tiger lily.
The leaves are lanceolate, densely sessile.
The flowers exude a strong, sweet and distinctly lily-like fragrance.
There is an old legend that if you smell the flowers of a tiger lily, you will get freckles.
We highly recommend decorating your garden by planting at least three bulbs of this beautiful lily. When this plant finishes flowering, its stems should be cut off about 10 cm above the ground.
