Yes Weezie, their common name is the foxtail lily
, and it is the first new plant
to show in my new garden, which is why I am so thrilled. I've got a few things coming through that were here when we moved but this is the first one that I wanted, and deliberately planted myself (courtesy of the grand-kids).
You say you haven't got room for one. When I was researching plants
to put in my garden, I obviously checked the Royal Horticultural Society's site. Apparently they have 500 of the robustus variety (the largest) on display. Their grounds must be nearly as large as mine.
