Eremurus (Foxtail Lily) Robustus, also known as the Desert Candle, is a spectacular perennial characterised by huge flower spikes that bear 700-800 tiny flowers in shades of pale and dark pink. The lightly fragranced flowers last around 3-4 weeks and are hugely attractive to honey bees. This statuesque beauty can grow to a height of 300cm so is ideally suited to the back of borders, adding a sculptural element to the landscape.
An excellent naturaliser, Eremurus (Foxtail Lily) Robustus will come back year after year. The root system of Eremurus robustus is fascinating in itself, consisting of the central growing point, the crown, which is encircled by fleshy, finger-thick tapering roots looking not dissimilar to a large starfish.
