GENERAL DESCRIPTION

These Roots Are Absolutely One Of The Biggest You Can Buy Measuring Between 15-20 Cms Across Producing Stunning Flowers

“Eremurus Robustus” 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 Long Dense Feathery Tall Clusters Of Pink Flowers With Starry Petals And Protruding Stamens. The Flowers Open Successively From The Bottom Of The Cluster Up. 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 Robustus” Has Received The Royal Horticultural Society’s Award Of Garden Merit (Agm) Which Is For Plants Of Outstanding Excellence

“Eremurus Robustus” Are Fully To Frost Hardy. They Should Be Planted In A Sunny, Warm Sheltered 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.

Care Of Bare Root Perennials

Remove The Plant From Its Packaging And Carefully Remove All Loose Packing Material. Soak The Roots In A Bucket Of Warm Water For About 30 Minutes. Examine The Root System And Trim Away Any Rotted, Mouldy Or Broken Roots With A Sharp Knife. Dig A Hole Deep And Wide Enough To Allow The Roots To Fan Out From The Crown At About 45º Angle. It Sometimes Helps To Make A Cone-Shaped Mound Of Soil In The Bottom Of The Hole And Spread The Roots Around It. Remember The Crown Of Most Perennials Should Be Placed 10-15cm Below The Surface. Cover The Roots With Soil And Press Down Firmly.Make Sure All The Roots-Especially Those Under The Crown-Are In Contact Wih The Soil. Water The Plant Well And Add A Layer Of Mulch (Soil Covering) Or Dry Straw Or Bracken
