These Eremurus or Foxtail Lilies are unlike anything else in the summer garden! Eremurus 'Ruiter Hybrid Mix' are stately, grand, and will take your breath away when they are in full flower. Huge, long flower spikes come in dusky, pastel shades that are fluffy in appearance (not unlike a fox's tail!). Hundreds of tiny flowers appear on each tall spike, gradually opening from the bottom to the top.

Eremurus × isabellinus 'Ruiter hybrids' are an old and trusted strain, producing a mix of pale flower shades from yellows, coppers and reds, to pink and creamy white, and all shades in between. Because of their height, they are ideally suited to the back of a flower border. They will give a classic cottage garden feel to any mixed border garden, and they also fit perfectly well in a modern, sleek and streamlined garden!

Eremurus need winter cold in order to induce flowering the following summer, but they appreciate good winter drainage, and ideally some mulch to give roots added frost protection. During the growing season they like plenty of sunlight and warmth. Eremurus establish into clumps that slowly grow, year-on-year. They also make wonderful cut flowers for indoor arrangements.
