Tiger Lilies

Things that naturally appear orange or close to orange are fairly rare. These delightful flowers are tiger lilies. They used to be seen in the Salt River Valley but now are quite rare. It is interesting how tastes in plants change just like tastes in clothes and other things. At one time they planted thousands of eucalyptus trees around the Phoenix area. Now, they are so "out-of-fashion" and the only eucalyptus trees left are old and dying. May tiger lilies will come back?
