The best borders in in the world wouldn’t look half as good without being jam-packed full of beautiful flowers all at different heights. Tall flowers play a very important role, towering behind lower-growing varieties and adding that much-needed extra dimension. What’s more, tall-flowering bulbs are often quite narrow in habit, so they add that sought-after fullness without taking up too much foot room. Plus, the closer the flowers are to head-height, the more you can enjoy them!
Summer is such a splendid season for flowers that many a beautiful bloom can be overlooked among the flowering profusion – but not the Foxtail Lily or Eremurus! Towering above its lesser neighbours, Eremurus offer both sculptural splendour and colour that ranges from the intense to the delicate depending on the variety you choose.
