General Information

Companion Planting: It is not recommended to grown Lilium tigrinum if you are growing any other species as aphids will pass along numerous virus infections from Lilium tigrinum to your other plants. This is a “Typhoid Mary” in the garden. Susceptible also are all other plants growing from a bulb or tuberous root.
Medicinal Uses: The bulb is anti-inflammatory, diuretic, emmenagogue, emollient and expectorant. They are used to relieve heart diseases, pain in the cardiac region and angina pectoris. They are used in Korea to treat coughs, sore throats, palpitations, and boils. The flowers are carminative. They are used to strengthen the eye-lid muscles and are commended in the treatment of myopic astigmatism. A tincture made from the flowering plant, harvested when in full flower, is used in the treatment of uterine neuralgia, congestion, irritation and the nausea of pregnancy. It relieves the bearing-down pain accompanying uterine prolapse and is an important remedy in ovarian neuralgia
In homeopathy use for Dysmenorrhea, Irritable bowel syndrome, Menopause symptoms, and menstrual problems
Food Uses: Bulb - cooked. Somewhat bitterish. Fairly pleasant, when properly cooked they are highly esteemed as a vegetable and somewhat resemble parsnips in flavor. The bulbs are up to 8cm in diameter. They are a good source of starch. The bulb can be dried and ground into powder. Flowers - raw or cooked. Used fresh or dried in salads, soups, rice dishes etc
Other Notes: There is an old legend from Asia about the Tiger Lily. A Korean hermit helped a wounded tiger by removing an arrow from its body. The tiger asked the hermit to use his powers to perpetuate their friendship after his death. The hermit agreed and when the tiger died, his body became a tiger lily. Eventually the hermit drowned and his body was washed away. The Tiger Lily spread everywhere searching for its friend.
