Feathery Blooms from the Base Up

This yellow Eremurus has a distinctive "bottle brush" shape to its long racemes.
Eremurus stenophyllus, sometimes known as Eremurus Bungei, is perennial flower native to the mountains of Persia known for its exceptional 12-inch-long racemes of star-shaped yellow flowers. Pick your spot carefully when planting this mountain native--Eremurus demands good light, good drainage, and shelter from drying winds. Cover that, and it becomes quite easy to grow, tolerating a variety of soil types and watering routines. It even survives deer incursions, since they don't care for its taste. Eremurus stenophyllus' star-shaped, bright yellow florets darken as they mature, becoming a rich goldenrod as they bask in the sunlight. What a delight in the garden or the vase!

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.
