This one is a volunteer. Surprise!!! It might have come from a plant I put in a few years ago or seeds I might have planted. But gardens do that. Just when you think nothing is coming up the next thing you know lots of things come up.
My Tiger Lillies were planted the first year we lived in the house. I have them next to the peonies in front of the rose-bush. The orange plays well off of the red roses. the only difficulty to their livelihood is being located next to the porch stairs and rail that have toy cars flying off and into the plant. The cars must be rescued by a five-year-old who does not care about flowers and that a particular plant is about to go into bloom.
I also like this pop of blue in my garden. The problem I am having right now is getting them to spread a little more.
