  • Tiger lilies also aren't native and are less invasive

This summer I noticed plants that were coming up out of the brush behind the fence and another growing out of the cylinder portion of the guardrail. They have been identified as a type of tiger lily that was popular years ago. I would like to preserve these flowers and replant them in the site.

Any suggestions?
