Cleopatra the revered Egyptian goddess was a time tested beauty! Cleopatra Eremerus is also a time tested beauty of the garden. Glowing orange blooms have a tint of salmon. Growing tall up to 5' these early summer bloomers are perfect for the back of the perennial border. Not only are they stunning with their spires of bright blooms, they are deer, rabbit and rodent resistant.

Foxtail Lily require very well drained soil in order to grow. See the Planting Advice below for more details on how to grow Foxtail Lilies.

  • Foxtail Lilies prefer a full sun location
  • Well drained soil is a MUST for the area you are planting foxtail lilies.
  • Improve soil drainage by adding organic matter like compost, manure or peat humus to the planting area. You may also plant in a raised bed that you have added well drained soil to.
  • The dormant bulb/root of the foxtail lily are large in diameter and spread out at least 6". Therefore the planting hole will need to be dug out to a width of near 12" to accommodate the large roots.
  • Plant Foxtail lily so that the crown of the bulb is 2" deep, just below the soil surface. You will need to dig 6-8” deep to loosen the soil and set the roots in place.
  • Mulch for winter protection when planting in hardiness zone 5 and 6.
