Description
Foxtail Lily has been a favorite for years. The flowers are colossal--up to 7 feet tall in several colors. This one is brilliant yellow with orangey highlights. Natives of Afghanistan and Turkistan, foxtail lilies grow so tall they may need staking if in a windy setting. They make great cut flowers, lasting for up to two weeks in an arrangement.'

        Takes a while to sprout but you won't be disappointed. You can hide them among other plants mine are next to a white meadow rue and the big tall yellow spike shoots up and what a pop of color the flower lasts a long time. My friends have already ordered some for themselves

                Comments about American Meadows Eremurus bungei - Root:

                Foxtail lilies look great in a rock garden. They add a lot of vertical interest and color mid-season, and bees love them. I paired them with purple Liatris for repetition of shape and contrast in color. I would recommend Eremurus bungei highly.
