Bulb for fall planting - Also called Foxtail Lilies, they don’t grow from bulbs, instead they are spidery looking tubers planted in the fall at the same time as tulips and daffodils. They are large plants requiring their space and send up giant bushy flower spires in a variety or reds, oranges and yellows as well as white. They bloom in May/June and can reach 3-6 feet tall.
