Common name foxtail lily
Family asphodelaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers pinkish orange (May-June)

From seed I can't seem to grow eremurus from seed. Several attempts yielded seedlings that were promising, but invariably, the foliage just died down in late spring, and the plants never returned.

The impressive flower spikes open their blossoms from the bottom upwards. Foliage is like a cross between big-bladed grass and daylilies.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
