Eremurus stenophyllus subsp. stenophyllus

Common Name(s):

Previously known as:

  • Eremurus bungei
Phonetic Spelling
er-EE-mur-us
Description

A bulb with average water needs that prefers neutral pH soil but tolerates slight alkalinity.  Leaves are spiny so transplant with caution.  It propagates by seed or division.  They do not tolerate extreme heat well.  The leaves will start to die back when the plant flowers, as all bulbs do, but do not remove leaves as they are sending energy to the bulb for next year.  Plant in a bed with other plants that will look attractive as the leaves of this bulb are dying back.
