Eremurus Cleopatra is a stunning variety named after the Egyptian Queen and has coppery rose flowers with a dark rib and red anthers.
Before planting cultivate the soil to a depth of 15-20cms and dig in organic matter (if available) to provide food when they are growing. Create a shallow planting round hole 15-20cm (6-8in) deep and wider than the eremurus to be planted. The centre of the Eremurus Cleopatra crown should be positioned on the centre of the crown on a mound of coarse grit, sharp sand or soil, so that the central growing point is just below the soil surface. If planting in clumps space the crowns 30-90cm (1-3ft) depending on the size and type of cultivar.
Feed regularly during the growing season with high potash and phosphate foods such as bone meal or tomato food.
