|Growing Hints:|| In the fall, plant tubers 6 inches deep and approximately 36 inches apart. Plants need regular watering during the growing season and should not be allowed to dry out. |
Care should be taken not to over water in the winter. After the plant flowers, the root stock can be divided, or simply discarded. Plants are slow to become established and dislike being divided, so many gardeners prefer to purchase new tubers annually. Applying fertilizer throughout the first few seasons will help plant establish roots. Well-established plants require very little maintenance and reseed themselves readily.
|Interesting Facts:||Foxtail lilies are native to western and central Asia.|
