It's colorful and blooms towards the end of the season here. Quite reliable. Not a large flower.

Bold Tiger was on of my earlier Gilbert H Wilds purchases. It did not bloom the first year as it was a very small plant. The second year it bloomed but was small and short. Last year it bloomed well and I even got a rebloom on some of the fans. It has increased from two small fans to a six fan clump. I like the color combination of reddish orange. It's a keeper for now.

I've had this plant for several seasons now. It has been quite dependable. My only real gripe is that it does not take even a light rain well, it easily bleeds out it's color in the petals. Give it a nice sunny day to open up on and it really shines with it's bright orange. The dark eye stands out nicely. Pod and pollen fertile.

Hum, I've always liked the look of Bold Tiger, but mine has not done that well. Blooms & multiplies only modestly, shorter than I really like. Maybe I need to move it. Daylilies around it do fine, but maybe it just doesn't like it there.
