Description from Crocus

Soaring, slender spikes of dark yellow flowers in early and midsummer rising above strap shaped, bluish-green leaves. This spectacular foxtail lily is perfect for creating a bold statement in a sunny, well-drained border. The yellow flowers open from the base of the spike and darken as they age, creating a two-tone effect. It’s best partnered with other late spring flowering perennials and tall grasses which help to mask the plant’s short lived foliage.

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,
