Eremurus are a spectacular group of perennial flowering plants that are clump-forming with large, erect stems with multitudes of petite, star-shaped flowers and strap-shaped basal foliage. Eremurus grows from what is commonly called a crown, a splayed tuberous root. With origins in drier conditions of semi-deserts in Asia, Eremurus require significantly well-draining soils.
Shallow root systems and with requirements of shelter from spring winds, Eremurus are both a delicate and stunning flowering plant with giant stalks filled with blooms. Ground level foliage will die back during the flowering-season, so it is advisable to have ground-covering plants or grasses as companion plants.
Plant in sunny, dry areas in the garden to ensure the best growing conditions and proper placement for Eremurus plants. Highly recommended planting the crown of the plant on top of gritty sand or soil in order to ensure proper drainage and lower moisture levels. Opening of the flowerheads begins towards the base of the stalk and with maturity, blooms open up towards the top of the spike.
Dig holes of 15-20cm deep and place the gritty sand and soil on the bottom. Eremurus is inclined to naturalise areas given the proper sunlight and drainage. Attractive for both butterflies and hummingbirds, Eremurus are exciting plants to have in the garden and make unique cut flowers as well.
