Lilium tigrinum, Ker-Gawl (L. sinense, Hort.). Tiger Lily. Bulb spherical, 2-4 in. diam., white or pale yellow, sometimes tinged red or purple: st. stout, 2-4 ft. high, deep purplish brown, covered with white or grayish cobweb-like down and producing deep purple bulbils in the upper lf .-axils: leaves 75-100 or more, deep green, 2-4 in. long, 1/4 in. wide: flowers 1-15. 3-5 in. diam., with bright salmon-red segms.; spotted purplish black and reflexed to the st. ; anthers red. Aug., Sept. China and Japan. — One of the hardiest, most permanent and most easily grown of all lilies, and furthermore, one of the most beautiful. It has escaped and become naturalized in parts of Maine and N. Y. Var. florepleno, Hort. (var. plenescens, Waugh), is identical, except the flowers are double. It is the only desirable double-fld. lily in culture. Var. splendens, Hort. (var. Leopoldii, Hort.), is a stronger grower than the type, and larger in every way, often growing 6-7 ft. high and bearing as many as 25 flowers which open later. Var. Ffirtunei, Hort. (L. Fortunei, Lindl.), is similar, but the leaves and flowers are paler in color and the sts. are smooth, not downy. The var. jocundum, Hort., or var. Lishmanii, Moore, is identical with L. Maximowiczii.
