GENERAL DESCRIPTION

“Eremurus” Is Native To Central Asia, The Middle East Eastern Europe And The Northern Himalayas; They Are Grown For Their Long Showy Flower Clusters On Lordly Stems.

Rosettes Of Long, Upright To Lax, Narrowly Strap-Shaped Leaves Grow In Spring From Crowns With Brittle Fleshy Roots. Plants Send Up Tall Leafless Flower Stems In Early Summer, Each Terminating In A Long Dense Feathery Tall-Like Cluster Of Flowers With Starry Petals And Protruding Stamens. The Flowers Open Successively From The Bottom Of The Cluster Up And Attract Bees And Other Pollinators. Small, Capsule Fruits That Turn From Green To Brown Follow The Flowers. The Leaves Deteriorate At Flowering Time, Withering Away By Midsummer.

Use Foxtail Lily As A Striking Accent For The Back Of The Perennial Border Or Cottage Garden.

“Eremurus Bungei” Has Received The Royal Horticultural Society’s Award Of Garden Merit (Agm) Which Is For Plants Of Outstanding Excellence

“Eremurus” Is Fully To Frost Hardy. They Should Be Planted In A Sunny, Warm Shelterd Area To Protect Against Strong Winds. They Rarely Need Staking When They Are Given Shelter. Choose The Position Carefully As They Resent Being Disturbed, Do Not Divide Or Transplant Unless Absolutely Necessary. They Can Be Grown In Fertile Sharply-Drained Soil, Neutral To Alkaline. Sharp Sand Can Be Added.

Plant The Tubers In A Hole Large Enough To Accommodate, Setting The Crown On A Mound Of Soil In The Base Of The Hole. The Roots Should Be Spread Gently On Top Of The Mound, So That They Are Not Crowded. The Crowns Should Be Placed 10-15cm Below The Surface. Protect The Crowns With A Mulch Of Dry Straw Or Bracken Until The Threat Of Frost Are Gone, Otherwise It Might Encourage The New Growth To Rot. They Are Easy To Grow But May Take 3-6 Months To Germinate
