The common names for Eremurus are Desert Candle, Foxtail Lily, Bottle Brush, and Needle of Cleopatra. It’s a spring bloomer flowering from March to August. It comes in Peach, Orange, and Yellow. It is a long cylindrical, tapering flower with many star shaped florets clustered along a 24 to 48 inch stem. Be careful not to get the blooms wet because they are very fragile.
Meaning: Endurance; I hold you in high esteem
