> Tiger Lillies host (asymptomatically) a lot of lilly viruses so fancy bulb places don't tend to sell them. They are really more of a pass along plant. Try garage sales and the sort of local garden club plant sale where people divide their own plants and pot up the extras.
I don't know about diseases, but I could have given away bushels of them
a couple of years ago, when I finally dug them out of my back yard. This
is an old house, with old-fashioned kinds of plants, and the tiger
lilies had just about taken over. They're pretty, and care-free, but man
do they spread!
Then again, if you can mow all around the patch, that would probably
keep them contained, I suppose (not necessarily killing the plants that
invade the grass, but keeping them small).
