The Tiger Lily Flowers of June

Every June, along the roadsides of the Blue Ridge Mountains, a profusion of color blankets the normally green undergrowth. This year, an abundance of rain combined with a late spring bloom has multiplied this annual orange extravaganza. The Tiger Lily acquired that moniker because of its animal like stripes. These tubers grow mostly underground except when they burst forth in early June.
