Eremurus Robustus (Foxtail Lily, Desert Candle)

Eremurus Robustus | White Foxtail Lily | White Desert Candle Robustus Eremurus Robustus is the tallest and most spectacular of all the foxtail lily varieties. We first saw these blooming in a botanic garden, stopped, stared and heard a woman standing nearby whisper to her husband "I don't know what those are but we're going to have them in our garden! Let's go find someone who works here and ask what they're called." And off they went. We get it. These are statement plants. Arresting spires, taller than most adults, bursting from wide, multi stalk clumps make you take notice. Able to do justice to that thigh-high glass vase you place on the floor by the window so the light shines through; cut several head-high stems and make a quick excuse for a party to show them off and wow your friends. Where happy, Robustus will produce a healthy family of seedlings; leave flower stems to dry and develop seeds if this is your goal.
