    Eastern Market Flowers – Tiger Lilies

    Eastern Maret Flowers – Big Blooming! Tiger Lilies are one of my old-fashioned gardening favorites. They fill the surrounding air with a great perfumed aroma. Standing tall in the rear of the garden, then later in the summer they are in full bloom.

    So why plant lilies in your garden? Beauty, low maintenance, aroma and best of all, Lilies are perennial! Their bright, large yellow blooms capture the attention of passers-by. With their 3 to 4 feet tall long stems, makes them the perfect choice for homemade flower bouquets.
