Eremurus (Foxtail Lilies) Cleopatra
Showy and stately, Cleopatra (Foxtail Lilies) Eremurus add vertical
interest and showy, orange flower spikes to the summer garden. They attract
pollinators, too. Growing 4-5' tall, Cleopatra Eremurus has a compact root,
strap-shaped leaves and hundreds of small, individual flowers. One of the most
colorful tall flowers available, foxtail lilies are also excellent in
cut-flower displays. Foxtail lilies bloom for 10-15 years without dividing.
Native to drier regions of western and central Asia, they grow best in full sun.
Deer tend to avoid.
