One of the stateliest hardy perennials adding a dramatic touch to your garden borders! In early summer these striking Eremurus produce tall spires consisting of hundreds of star-shaped blooms. This improved collection of foxtail lilies looks fantastic partnered with lower growing perennials and grasses to hide the short-lived, grey green foliage which dies back as the flowers begin to bloom. This long-lived hardy perennial also makes a sensational cut flower! Bare root plants supplied.

    Collection comprises 3 plants each of:
  • Eremurus stenophyllus 'Sunbeam' - Impressive stems tower with stately grandeur in spires of golden yellow starry flowers. Height: 120cm (47"). Spread: 60cm (24")
  • Eremurus robustus 'Foxtrot' - The giant of our foxtail lilies, growing to 3 metres high! Elegant spires of pale pink flowers appear in mid-summer. Height: 300cm (118"). Spread: 120cm (47")
  • Eremurus x isabellinus 'Pinocchio' - Dark orange, star shaped flowers erupt from the tall stems of this imposing herbaceous perennial. Height: 150cm (59"). Spread: 90cm (35").

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.
