    The elegant flowerspike of this cultivar is crowded with rusty orange buds opening to peach-flushed, golden-yellow flowers. A relatively compact form, it tolerates more exposed positions where it will put on an eye-catching display.

    Foxtail lilies need to be planted in fertile but well-drained soil with the crown not far below soil level. They start to grow in late winter and spring, gathering their strength before they produce their towering flower spikes in summer. Each flower spike has hundreds of flowers which open from the bottom upwards, creating a stunning effect. They thrive in the sunniest spot in the garden, especially if the base of the plant isn't shaded as this can decrease the number of flowering spikes produced.

  • Garden care: Plant shallowly in a sunny spot, ideally where the crown can get as much sun as possible. Large or congested clumps can be carefully lifted and divided in early autumn, replanting the strongest crowns on a bed of sharp grit, spreading out their roots and covering with a 5cm deep layer of soil. In frost-prone areas cover with a dry mulch.
