    A recently introduced Ruiter hybrid, with spectacular tapering plumes that are clothed with brilliant white flowers, that open gradually from the bottom upwards. These potted bulbs are ready to be planted out in the garden, where they will add height and structural interest to the planting scheme. The flower spikes can also be cut and added to fresh floral arrangements, where they will often last for many weeks.

    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: 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.
