Orange foxtail lily is an interesting accent to low water gardens. It is planted as a bulb in August. The thin, long leaves are not very noticeable, but the flower spikes are very interesting and showy. They have hundreds of small orange flowers per spike. They start blooming at the bottom of the spike first and slowly bloom to the top.
Orange foxtail lily has been a good performer at the Xeriscape Garden. It takes little water, has amazing flowers, and is low maintenance. After blooming, the plant goes semi-dormant, so plant amongst other plants that look good through most of the summer.
Cut flower spike to ground level after blooming when appearance is no longer attractive.
