    These foxtail lilies are ideal for borders or meadow-style planting schemes, where their impressive flower spikes will add colour, height and structural interest in early summer. The flowers come in shades of gold, orange and pink, and as this collection is put together when the plants are fully dormant, it is a bit of a lucky dip as to which colours you will receive.

    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 hundres 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: In September every three to five years carefully lift and divide congested clumps. Replant the strongest crown on a layer of sharp grit, spreading out the roots and covering them with a thin (5cm/2in) layer of soil. In frost-prone areas cover with a dry mulch of fern leaves.
