Product Information

Also known as the Mexican shell flower, peacock flower or Aztec lily, the striking Tigridia is a delightful flower with petals in a multitude of shades of scarlet, orange, pink, yellow, mauve and white, usually with contrasting spots and splashes in the centre of the flower. Each bloom consists of three large coloured petals surrounding three smaller spotty petals and a central cup and with its lance-shaped leaves, the blooms are not unlike a gladiolus, and just like day lilies will flower for just one day - although although they are produced in succession, so blooming can last several weeks.

Hardy to -2°C, in cold areas dig up the bulbs after flowering and overwinter in sand in a dry, frost-free place, repotting in the spring. Alternatively they can be grow in pots and moved out of the cold in winter.

Supplied as a pack of 25 bulbs, ready for immediate planting. Plants will reach up to 1m and flower from July to August.

Care Information

Planting Advice for Tigridia:

  • Generally, plant bulbs at twice the depth of the height of the bulb and four times their width apart. e.g. 5cm tall bulbs need to be planted 10cm below the surface of the ground and 20cm apart.
  • Please check the bag for any additional planting instructions.
  • They are fine to plant even if a little green growth is showing, they’ll just need a good watering when you plant them, and then only when the soil is dry.
  • Plant in herbaceous borders or preferably in pots. If planted in pots be sure to water frequently and keep moist.

 

Aftercare Advice for Tigridia:

  • Allow the bulb leaves to die down naturally they can give you a long and lovely spring display.
  • Water freely through the summer.
  • While all the energy that a bulb needs in order to grow is stored in the bulb itself, they will do better if you feed them when in active green growth.
  • If planted in pots be sure to water frequently and keep moist.

Pruning Advice for Tigridia:

  • Cut off the old flower spikes as soon as the bloom period is over.
