Make a colourful statement in your garden this year with the impressive Eremurus 'Rumba' a fully hardy yet exotic-looking perennial that will amaze everyone who sees it.
The colossal flower spike of this relatively new variety is packed with orange blooms and make exceptional cut flowers.
Also known as Desert Candles, the impressive flower spires are packed with star-shaped blooms, creating a bottlebrush effect. In June/July, 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.
Rumba will put on a dazzling display like a giant sparkler as the blooms open up along its length from bottom to top, fizzing with colour.
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!
