You'll want to stare down and be a predator of this warm-colored, red-eyed daylily flower! The Bold Tiger daylily produces medium orange blossoms with a wide-banded reddish eye just above a greenish throat. This cultivar blooms in late spring to early summer. The daylily is a popular perennial revered for its reliability, ease of growth and floral beauty. 'Bold Tiger' was bred by Patrick Stamile and introduced in 1990.
This hybrid tetraploid produces small grapefruit-size flowers atop a branching naked stem called a scape. The scapes rise from clumps of strappy green leaves that die back in fall and winter's cold. Each blossom in the bud cluster opens in the morning, but shrivels up well before reaching 24-hours old.
Daylilies are clump-forming and spread slowly via rhizomes. The blooms are commonly held in branched clusters on long leafless stems that stand above the foliage. All daylilies are easy to grow if provided full to partial sun and average soil with good drainage. Deciduous daylilies are the hardiest and survive in the coldest reaches of their range; however they may struggle in areas with mild winters. Evergreen types grow well in all but the most tropical regions but require protection where winters are harsh and cold. Their clumps spread over time and may need to be divided every three to four years. After plants bloom, it is wise to shear back their foliage to allow for a fresh flush of growth.
