Foxtail Lily Growing and Maintenance Tips

Eremurus need a rich, well-drained, sandy soil, in full sun. Plants may require staking and should be planted in a spot protected from strong winds. Mulching the plants is recommended for winter survival, but should be removed from the crown before new growth emerges. Plants do not like to be divided due to their fragile, root systems.
