Eremurus stenophyllus - Pack of 3
Feathery Blooms from the Base Up
Eremurus stenophyllus grow very quickly in the right conditions. Expect it to reach 3 to 4 feet tall and about 2 feet wide. The blooms come on from late spring to early summer. You can cut them for the vase, or deadhead them as you see fit, and this will encourage further blooming. In the winter this Eremurus will go dormant and the foliage will appear to die off. You can prune the plant down to ground level, then. Just leave the roots intact, and this indomitable perennial will rise again next Spring . . . and the one after that!
Plant your Eremurus in full or partial sun in an area with excellent drainage. Eremurus stenophyllus likes all different types of soil, but hates standing water. If you don't naturally have great drainage, then dig your hole and make a bed of sand or grit to place the tubers on. Eremurus will naturalize to fill out an area over time, creating a slowly-expanding field of airy yellow spires! Zones 5 to 8.
