Make a bold statement in your borders this year and amaze your friends and neighbours with Eremurus 'Cleopatra', a fully hardy yet exotic-looking perennial for adding height and interest to your garden.
Already grown to a large full-size plant for you, you don't have to wait years to appreciate the spectacular spires of bloom.
With mid-green lance-shaped leaves and dense flower spikes of striking burnt orange, the flower buds of this Foxtail Lily open a vibrant peach-orange with a dark red midrib.
Also known as Desert Candles, the impressive orange flower spires 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 orange 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 4L pot, ready for immediate planting - then you can leave them alone!
