double-flowered tiger lily; was: Re: [pbs] Bulb Odds and ends

I'm quite fond of my double-flowered tiger lilies.  I first saw these in a
large stand by the road, in the little summer community of Panther Lake,
NY.  In a large grouping, they're superb; you definitely do a double take
when you see them (no pun intended).  The plants were robust, the flowers
well-formed (sort of a hose-in-hose effect), and needless to say, I came
home with a pocketful of bulbils (the homeowner was all set to get a shovel
and dig me some, but I assured him that was completely unnecessary).  Now
that I have a large supply to work with, I've put in a whole stand in front
of the house.  I do sell them, too, if anyone's interested (too large to
ship now, of course).
