    A recently introduced Ruiter hybrid, with spectacular tapering plumes that are clothed with brilliant white flowers, that open gradually from the bottom upwards. Enjoy them in the garden, or cut them and add to arrangements inside the house 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 if you can, and cover them with a thin (5cm/2in) layer of soil. In frost-prone areas cover with a dry mulch of fern leaves.

    Used them at the back of the border, a group of 3, they need support. Best when the sun goes down, they light up. We leave them outside, come back every year.

    Can you help me ID a tall, single stemed, ivory flowering plant with spiky leaves? Hi, Can you help? I'm trying to identify a plant I've seen recently. It would probably be described as architectural as it's a magnificent tall plant with a single stem, that has green spiky leaves all around the base of the plant. It has a single upright stem (about 3 ft high) with a cream multi-flowered head (a bit like delphinium in proportion of the stem covered by flowers). Where the flower heads cover the main stem, the flower coverage is wider at the bottom than the top so the flowering part has a cone-shape. The long spiky green leaves are around the base of the plant only and look a bit like an exotic plant i.e. a bit like some palms and the plant seems to be evergreen. I know the plant is available in England as I saw it some months ago on the internet but omitted to jot down it's name. Any ideas?! And do you stock it if you can identify it? Kind regards. Peter
