Product Information

Make a bold statement in your borders this year and amaze your friends and neighbours with Eremurus 'Foxtail Lily' - a fully hardy yet exotic-looking perennial for adding height and interest to your garden.

Known as Desert Candles or Foxtail Lilies due to their huge tail-like spires of bloom, the impressive butter-yellow flower candles are packed with star-shaped blooms, creating a bottlebrush effect.

The flowers open from the bottom of the spike upwards in a wave of subtle colour change that cannot be missed, and the tails often bend as they grow - looking even more like the jaunty tail of a fox.

Growing to (1.2m) 4ft tall, these fully hardy, dramatic-looking plants are perfect for the back of sunny borders where the towering spikes emerge from fleshy roots, which are not unlike a giant starfish.  The yellow blooms are long lasting and over the years they will grow into large, prolific clumps.

Easy to grow and supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready for immediate planting - then you can leave them alone!

Top Tips

Mark the position of the plant with a cane or similar to avoid accidental damage when dormant.

Care Information

  • On receipt, plant straight away and feed well when shoots emerge. Then leave them alone! Take care when planting as the roots can be quite brittle.
  • Create a planting hole slightly larger than the pot and add 2.5cm (1in) of course grit to the bottom of the hole.
  • Position the plant so the central growing point is just below the soil surface. If planting in clumps space the crowns 30-90cm (1-3ft) depending on the size and variety.
  • Mark the position of the plant with a cane or similar to avoid accidental damage when dormant, and to mark a good spot for inserting a stake to support over-heavy flowers.
