The Eremurus Cleopatra bulb sparks to life in a dramatic fashion, with the summer-flowering bulb spurting up from the border with long, colourful flower spikes that emerge from the low rosettes of foliage. This particular Foxtail Lily Bulb will start to grow in late winter and spring, usually producing one tall flower spike composed of masses of tiny blooms.
Eremurus lives up to their common name of Foxtail lily and the flowers open from the base of the spike, while attractting scores of pollinators with their honey scent. Eremurus ?Cleopatra? is a vibrant orange foxtail lily that adds drama and height to a flower border.
Eremurus originate from mountainous regions of Asia and, like tulips, they need good drainage, a sunny position, and a period of winter cold to flower well.
