Description

Harness your soft side by growing whimsical spires of pastel perfection! Eremurus 'Romance' will have you starry eyed when those tall, foxtail-flower spikes emerge in the most loveable shade of peachy-pink. Not only will you be introducing a contrasting shape and impressive feature to the garden, but also pollinators to those bee-magnet blooms. If you like growing flowers to cut for homemade bouquets, you’ll be overjoyed at the fairy-tale floral masterpiece you can create with a few of the dreamy stems from Eremurus 'Romance'.      

Just imagine how lovely Eremurus 'Romance' will look in a sunny border among pale pink, white, soft yellow and lilac-coloured flowers. Flowering around June/July, it’s an early-summer masterpiece. To add a colour contrast, try combining this with late-flowering alliums like Allium 'Forelock' and Allium sphaerocephalon. This foxtail lily needs a sunny position with very free-draining (ideally sandy or stony) soil, it will appreciate a covering of mulch in late winter/early spring to protect the young foliage which emerges early.

Useful information

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

    • Plant in borders in a sunny, sheltered position

    • Soak your "Foxtail lily" 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 'Romance' bulbs 15-20cm apart
