The bulbs look fine. I have never previously had much luck with Foxtail Lilies. I have tried various other suppliers without success, so hoping Unwin's comes up trumps. If not it could be me - time will tell.
only time will tell if they come up and flower
Eremurus Cleopatra - Foxtail Lily Bulbs
Eremurus bulbs produce showy flowers in summer. Eremurus bulbs originate from mountainous regions of Asia and, like tulips, they need good drainage, a sunny position, and a period of winter cold to flower well.
Eremurus Cleopatra sparks to life in a dramatic fashion, spurting up from the border with long, colourful flower spikes that emerge from the low rosettes of foliage. This particular Foxtail Lily Bulb will start to grow in late winter and spring, usually producing one tall flower spike composed of masses of tiny blooms.
Eremurus lives up to their common name of Foxtail lily and the flowers open from the base of the spike, while attractting scores of pollinators with their honey scent. Eremurus 'Cleopatra' is a vibrant orange foxtail lily that adds drama and height to a flower border.
How you receive your bulbs
You receive our spring-flowering bulbs in autumn in a plastic mesh. This is to keep the bulbs together in a pack which is nice and airy – perfect to keep the bulbs healthy while in transit.
Can’t plant straight away?
Keep your bulbs in a cool, light and dry place and preferably hanging on a hook so that air can get to the bulbs at all angles. Look to planting your bulbs within a week of receiving them.See Full Description +
