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!
