Gardeners' Notes:

Eremurus are stunning in the garden and are often passed over by gardeners because they have a reputation to be difficult. I have to say though, that I have grown 'Cleopatra' and had pretty good success with it.

Eremurus bulbs are expensive but I always save part of my budget for at least a couple of them and they are usually available for sale late in the season.
