Details

Given its provenance it should come as no surprise that Eremurus Romance needs well-draining - but not dry - soil. To help achieve this lay the crown and fleshy roots over a 1 to 2 inch deep layer of horticultural grit or sharp sand. When planted, the crown should show above the surface of the soil and should never be mulched over, although the roots will benefit from the protection of mulch that stays fairly dry, such as shingle or bark. The early growth is prone to frost damage and, although established plants will grow away without difficulty after a frost it is usually at the expense of great size. That said, the foxtail lily is a pretty tough plant and, while it will benefit from a sheltered site, it is not essential. If the foxtail lily is happy it will produce seedlings at a healthy rate. To enable the plant to self-seed leave the flower spike standing into autumn so that the seeds can ripen and drop. Seed can also be sown in a cold frame or cool greenhouse in autumn. After flowering the plant can be divided by carefully finding the root system and gently teasing the plant free of the surrounding soil.

How-To-Guides

Eremurus Romance (Foxtail Lily)

Eremurus is a very large genus, originating from the middle East and Central Asia. Also known as the Foxtail Lily, Eremurus Robustus bulbs have rhizomatous or fleshy roots radiating from compact crowns. Eremurus bulbs flower towards the end of the growing period in the early summer, just as their leaves begin to die back.

Plant Foxtal Lily bulbs in the fall in fertile, well-drained (but not dry), gritty or sandy soil with their crowns just below soil level. When planted, it is important that the crown still remains sticking out above the surface of the soil

In areas with cold, wet winters but no snow cover, protect with mulch.

Eremurus do best with alkaline soils and an open, sunny location. In windy areas, it may be necessary to support their tall-stemmed flowers.
