Eremurus, commonly known as Foxtail Lily, is a genus of about 50 species of deciduous perennials in the family Asphodelaceae, native to Europe and temperate Asia. Foxtail Lilies bloom from spring to midsummer, producing dense clusters of small star-shaped flowers on tall, erect stems. Their spectacular, rich, tall and slender clusters make them one of the most attractive bulbous plants that will add height and interest to the borders.
Meaning: Eremurus is a symbol of endurance.
Symbolism: The genus name is derived from the Greek words “ekemos” (“solitary”) and “oura” (“tall”).
