The first narcissi of the spring - Paper Whites - scent the garden and sometimes flower as early as December

Eremurus Cleopatra Known affectionately as the Fox-Tail-Lily bulb, Eremurus are a herbaceous perennial bulb that produce tall flower spiked which has an abundance of rosettes and small star-shaped flowers. Eremurus bulbs can be planted in autumn and will flower in late spring through to early summer. Try planting alongside smaller spring and summer bulbs such as Ixia, Sparaxis or Iris that will complement the border display comprehensively. Eremurus really are a garden designer's delight!

You will want to plant these corms (a type of bulb) in full sun and in well drained soil after danger of frost. You would plant them 3-4 inches deep with flat side down and about 5 inches apart. A great technique is planting multiples of them a week apart to have glads blooming all summer into fall!
