They are very showy flowers when they bloom. I've had them in my garden for several years now, so they are reliable. Mind, though, that during blooming the leaves already start to die back like all bulbs do. You may not cut them off, so it's best that you plant them near perennials or herbaceous shrubs that starts to grow big when Eremurus starts to die back. Just cover the ugly leaves. I'm always looking forward in excitement for their blooming ...counting the buds early spring, covering them for late nightfrosts...every year...they are like fireworks..short time blooming but oooh...so pretty!
