These colourful, sun-loving Tiger flowers will create a riot of colour in your summer borders and patio containers. The large, vibrant blooms with contrasting speckled centres are relatively short-lived but appear in succession through the summer. Originating from Mexico, Tigridia pavonia is a tender summer bulb and is best lifted and stored over winter in a frost-free place. They can be planted again in the spring for another colourful summer show. Height: 40cm (16"). Spread: 20cm (8").

Grow Tigridia bulbs in a fertile, well-drained, sandy soil in full sun. Plant the corms in spring at a depth of 10cm (4"). If growing Tigridia in containers use a loam based compost such as John Innes No.2, with added grit to improve drainage. Tigridia pavonia bulbs are frost-tender so are best planted in borders in late spring, or started off in containers indoors which can be moved outside for the summer.

Feed Tigridia plants monthly and water well during active growth. As the leaves die back in the autumn, reduce watering and allow the soil to dry out in order to provide the bulbs with a dry, dormant period. Allow foliage to die back naturally after flowering before removing it. This will help to feed the bulb and ensure another good display next spring.

Tiger flowers are frost-tender and require a minimum temperature of 10°C (50°F). Tigridia bulbs grown outdoors should be lifted and stored in dry sand in a frost-free position over winter. Move patio containers to a frost-free greenhouse or conservatory. Bulbs can be replanted in the following spring when all risk of frost has passed.
