Tuscawilla Tigress Daylily Features:

‘Tuscawilla Tigress’ daylily is Hot Hot Hot! Big bright orange blooms with a deeper orange halo catch your eye and refuse to let it go! A good rebloomer in our garden, and is also nocturnal, meaning the blooms start to open the night before.

7 1/4″ blooms are big and bold and beautiful and grow tall on scapes over 2′ tall in our East Tennessee garden! A good rebloomer, you can expect to see these blooms off and on throughout the season.  An early to mid season bloomer, we can typically expect to see these bright, gorgeous blooms in early to mid June here on our zone 7 farm. If you live to our north, you’ll generally see it a few weeks after us. Those of you to our south will see it a couple weeks before we do.

A semi-evergreen variety, this fiery orange beauty can be grown in gardens across the country.

These bold blooms look fantastic with bright yellow or gold and really add sizzle when paired with dark purple.

HOW TO GROW DAYLILIES: Daylilies are very easy-to-grow. They like a lot of sun and they like a lot of water. For more information on how to care for daylilies, click here.
WHAT DAYLILIES CAN I GROW: Most of you can grow any of the daylilies we sell. If you live in an area with a sustained cold period like we do in East Tennessee, you can grow all the varieties. However, If you live in an area that doesn’t get freezing weather in the winter (like zones 9 and 10), dormant varieties won’t work for you; you’ll need to choose evergreen or semi-evergreen varieties.

BIG PLANTS! When it comes to daylily plants, bigger is better! All of the plants we ship will be three fans or larger — two or three times (or more) what you might receive from other companies. Larger plants get established faster and bloom more quickly!

FARM-FRESH TO YOU! All of your plants will be freshly dug when you order. The leaves are trimmed and the plants are washed and air-dried. Your daylilies will be out of the ground less than 48 hours before they’re headed your way.

BONUS DAYLILIES: We send free daylilies (we call them “bonus” daylilies) with every order. These daylilies are equal to about 20% of your order and are the same huge, healthy plants we sell. Just leave the decision up to us and we’ll pick something you’re sure to love!

ABOUT US: Oakes Daylilies is a family-owned daylily farm that’s been in business for three generations. Our daylilies grow in home gardens, city parks and botanical gardens across the nation– including Hawaii and Canada. We are known in the industry as Daylily Experts and grow over 1000 varieties of daylilies on nearly 70 acres in East Tennessee. But over 50 years ago, we started just like you—with one daylily in a home garden.

  1. first year plant not blooming yet

    martha (verified owner)

    I planted 7 daylilies this year, all from Oakes. 4 have bloomed, Pardon Me has been blooming repeatedly for more than a month now. This has shown some increase, but no flower stalks. Maybe next year…

    Tuscawilla Tigress has been one of my best daylilies. At first, I was attracted by the large sturdy blossoms, but it is also one of the taller varieties in my flower bed. Because it has grown so much in size, I’ve been able to divide it several times and share this beauty with friends.

    Tuscawilla Tigress - most beloved flower in our whole yard!!

    Jessica Slates

    I bought this daylily from you 20 years ago when we built our house, and I have split it 4 times (gave one split to my Mom) since then! The 3 splits in our backyard now are HUGE, and I so look forward to them blooming every July! 20 years later, they are still my most beloved flower in our yard! The blooms are huge, bright orange, gorgeous, and prolific!! I HIGHLY recommend Tuscawilla Tigress! ♥️

    Gorgeous!!

    Sandra Hofferber (verified owner)

    Tuscawilla Tigress is everything a daylily should be! This tigress is big, bold, and gorgeous! I planted this daylily in the fall of 2017, and it was lovely last year. But this year it was nothing short of stunning! The blooms were huge, and it bloomed from early summer until now. The rebloom came right on the heels of the first bloom so that it seemed it never stopped blooming.

    What a workhorse!

    Elyce (Peterson) Cripps (verified owner)

    Tuscawilla Tigress is a great plant! It is strong, great foliage, bright color and fast increaser! The flower shape is interesting and the blooms are huge. For those of you that might like the traditional Fulva (ditch lily) because of it’s color and vigor, you’ll love this plant! You get all the color and hardiness but NONE of the invasiveness of the fulva variety! I have this one growing alongside Bela Lugosi! I love it.

    outstanding orange color!

    Connie C Schweizer

    If I could give this daylily 10 stars I would…I’ve divided it over the years so I can have a splash of orange in different parts of my yard.

    This was my 2nd year with Tuscawilla Tigress. The blooms were huge, and color was so rich! And she bloomed for a very long time.

    Tuscawilla Tigress was one of my favorite bloomers this year. It was my best increaser and the color is outstanding! The color stays bright all day long in full sun. I would recommend this to everyone!

    Cheerful Tuscawilla Tigress

    Elizabeth Flum (verified owner)

    I planted Tuscawilla Tigress during the late spring of 2016. This year the daylily started to make some very pretty blooms. The Tigress is a very cheerful daylily and I am looking forward to her growth next year.

    Tuscawilla Tigress is one of my all time favorites. The bloom is huge, a gorgeous, bright orange color, has beautiful markings, and shows up a long way off. You won’t be disappointed with this wonderful daylily, which is also a very good bloomer.

    I planted Tigress last year and now that it’s well rooted, it’s the biggest show off in the garden. The blooms are huge and keep their vibrant orange color all day, even with the sun beating on them for more that 8 hrs a day. Very prolific bloomer. I can’t wait until fall to divide it.

    This is a great plant for a sunny garden; the color does not fade in full sun, the blooms are huge and showy. I have many scapes and lots of blooms – it really brightens up my garden!

    These enormous orange blooms are absolutely stunning!! I ordered this plant two years ago, and I can’t believe how many more blooms there are this year than last year! I have thoroughly enjoyed this plant. 🙂
