Description

This cheeky chap Eremurus 'Pinokkio' is a little more modest in height than many other Eremurus varieties, making it the perfect choice for those who have a small garden or limited space, but still want to experience these gorgeous flowers in all their fluffy and tactile splendour! The cheerful yellow-orange flowers will bring plenty of joie de vivre to your midsummer display, and will be adored by pollinators, making them a great choice for wildlife gardens.

Plant your Eremurus × isabellinus 'Pinokkio' in the sunniest spot in the garden, in fertile but very well-drained soil. They prefer not to have wet feet over the winter, so adding some grit to heavy soils will be sure to keep them happy. They have great drought tolerance, so their dramatic plumes will be right at home in any low-maintenance scheme or eco-friendly dry garden too.

Other information

    • Plant your Eremurus 'Pinokkio' bulbs from mid to late autumn

    • Plant in borders in a sunny, sheltered position

    • Soak your "Desert candle" bulbs/roots in water for 2-3 hours prior to planting

    • Dig a hole 15-20cm deep for the whole bulb with a peak of light soil, grit, sand or gravel in the centre so that the crown is shallower than the roots

    • Plant with the crown just below the soil surface with any visible shoots or 'eyes' facing upwards, and the roots angled downwards

    • Space the Eremurus 'Pinokkio' bulbs 15-20cm apart
