Collection: Tigridia (Tigerflower) Bulbs

Tigridia, commonly known as Tigerflower or Mexican Shell Flower, is a fabulous, very showy summer flower. The shape and coloring of the bloom is unusual, and interesting.  Tigerflowers closely resemble Gladiola, with large, 3 to 6-inch flared flowers in an array of two-toned combinations of pink, red, white, yellow, cream and orange colors.  Triangular shaped petals of solid colors embellish the outer edges of the flower with a contrasting center that resembles a tiger’s spots, thus the genesis of its name. The pleated foliage has the appearance of a fan, adding to the beauty of the growing Tigerflower. The bloom remains open for only a short time but in a few days, another will open from the same bud sheath providing brightly colored, though short-lived, blooms over a long blooming season.  Being native to Mexico they demand full sun. Low maintenance, high drama and resistant to deer and rabbits, Tigridia are exceptional in beds, borders and large containers.
