Planting and growing instructions: Buy Foxtail Lily Bulbs | Eremurus Himalaicus | Gold Medal winning Harts Nursery

  • Choose a Sunny position to plant your Eremurus Bulbs. Choose your position carefully as Eremurus resents being disturbed. They prefer a Sunny position as they will develop stronger stems but they will grow in light shade also.
  • Eremurus Bulbs like a well-drained, sandy soil. Preferably an ordinary Acidic or Neutral soil type.
  • Gently tuck your Eremurus roots into a hole that is 5 to 6" deep and 10-12" across, fanning them out and pointing them slightly downwards.
  • Space plants about a foot apart. Plant carefully as the roots can break if not handled gently.
  • After planting, water well, gently soaking the soil and settling it around the roots. Root growth will begin in the Autumn. Top growth and flower stems will form in the Spring.

  • Water as needed throughout its growth. Keep in mind that weekly deep waterings are better than lighter drinks every one to two days.
  • After blooming has finished for the season, feel free to trim off the flower spikes but leave the foliage in place. The leaves will gather sunlight, create food through photosynthesis and strengthen the bulb for the future.
  • By mid summer the leaves will yellow and die back as the plant slips into dormancy. Foliage many be removed at this point. Marking the spot with a small stake is recommended to ensure that the roots are not disturbed. Fresh growth will appear again in late Autumn or Spring, depending on where you live.
  • Eremurus prefer to remain undisturbed and therefore are not ideal for containers. We recommend planting them in beds and borders rather than in containers.
