The Foxtail Lily. A very striking plant for the border. Tufts of narrow foliage from which rise strong long spikes closely set with numerous tiny florets. Flowers June to July. [Photo: Eremurus Tropical Dream - 40395]
Plant tubers vertically at such a depth that the crown just shows at soil level. They thrive in all soil types but require a sunny warm position and good drainage is essential.
Nowhere can these plants be seen to better advantage than when planted in pockets in the border or naturalised in clumps on the rockery. Flowers April. [Photo: Erythronium pagoda - 40415]
They are easily grown planted in a damp position and if allowed to establish will flower more profusely each season. Plant horizontally 5cm (2") deep and 10cm (4") apart.
