This perennial is so named due to its flower colors resembling a tiger’s skin. The decorative plant can be used in beds and borders. The flower petals curve backward and look stately in containers. The slender stems bear strongly lance-shaped leaves. It is very easy to care for and looks striking with the color combination of its blooms.
The plant has average water needs. The soil should have good moisture without being left dry at any time.
Once the flowering season is over, cut back the stems and leaves when they turn yellow.
Don’t need much of it. A compost layer around its base once or twice a year is enough to take care of its nutrition. Keep the roots cool in summer by mulching in spring.
