Dark orange, star shaped flowers erupt from tall stems of this imposing herbaceous perennial. Foxtail Lily Pinokkio creates a dramatic focal point for the back of sunny borders! Partner it with lower growing perennials and grasses to hide the short lived, grey green foliage which dies back as the flowers begin to bloom. This long lived hardy perennial also makes a sensational cut flower! Height: 150cm (59"). Spread: 90cm (35"). Size one bareroot plants supplied.
On delivery of your bareroot herbaceous perennials please plant them at the earliest opportunity. Should soil conditions prevent planting directly into borders (if soil is frozen or waterlogged), Foxtail lily plants should be potted up, watered sparingly and grown on in a cool position.
Choose a sheltered position in full sun with well drained soil. If planting on heavy or clay soils, dig in some coarse grit to improve drainage prior to planting. Dig a hole wide enough to accommodate the bareroot with its roots spread out and deep enough that the crown of the plant is just a few cm below soil level. Backfill the hole with soil and firm the plant in gently. Leave a slight depression around the plant ? this will help to direct water towards the roots. Water well to settle the soil.
