Foxtail Lily


Eremurus (Foxtail Lilies) Bungei (Stenophyllus) or Foxtail Lily is  a beautiful perennial with spikes of yellow flowers that brighten the early summer garden. Foxtail lilies are not native to this region but have a compact root, strap-shaped leaves and hundreds of small, individual flowers that attract pollinators. They're showy as a cut flower, too. Deer-resistant perennials, foxtail lilies bloom for 10-15 years without dividing.


Zones 5 - 8.
