One of my favourites this year (bought in flower in June for a customer) is the Foxtail Lily
Looking at its shape and colour, you can see why it's called the Foxtail lily
Eremurus - also known as the foxtail lily
or desert candle.
Look out for eremurus, the Foxtail Lily
for planting in a sheltered, sunny position - its tall, elegant spikes of flowers are a joy to behold.

His favourite plant is the Foxtail lily
which grows in both the herbaceous border on the South lawn as well as the walled garden at the back of the house.

Eremurus (the Foxtail lily
) 2m (6ft) high x 60cm (2ft) wide - not often seen, but a plant with very striking flowers, like pale orange or yellow rockets shooting up from the back of a border in early to mid-summer.
