Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
This Foxtail Lily is a plant popular with professional garden designers, as it gives height and colour to a border. They are similar in style to Red Hot Pokers, but Foxtail Lillies have wispy multi flowered heads on 1 metre high stems. Eremurus x isabellinus 'Cleopatra' is perfect for planting amongst low lying plants in cottage garden or contemporary style borders. Foxtail Lilies originate from Central Asia, and although exotic looking have good hardiness. It will form a dense clump once established. Height: 1.2m (3.9'). Spread: 1m (39").

Grow Foxtail Lilies in a sheltered position in full sun with well drained soil. If planting Eremurus plants on heavy or clay soils, dig in some coarse grit to improve drainage prior to planting.
Try to prevent the base of the plant from becoming shaded as this will reduce the number of Foxtail Lily flower spikes that are produced. In autumn, remove old foliage and apply a mulch of well rotted manure to the base of Eremurus plants, avoiding the crown.
