|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.|
