The Eremurus flower

Published on July 11, 2022


The spectacular bulb flower Eremurus is part of the Liliaceae family, relative to the lily. Native to western and central Asia, particularly in the high altitude of Iran, Turkey, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. The flower can reach a high of six feet, which gives the flower a long dramatic shape. Actually, it’s not one but hundreds of tiny flowers attached to the central stem.

Eremurus comes from the Greek words Eremia (meaning desert) and Pura (meaning tall). The other names of the flower are also referenced to the shape or native place of the flowers. The most famous name is Foxtail lily, which is a very nice reference to the bushy appearance of a tail. Other names are Desert candles (referring to how they are never completely straight but weave around in the wind), Needle of Cleopatra, and King’s spears.


The symbolism of this elegant flower is endurance. Secretly a reference to the long flowering period, but a symbolism you can use if you want to give a bouquet with significance.


Eremurus has a unique soft color palette and a natural color gradient. White, cream, apricot, salmon, yellow, orange, and soft pink are the colors of this beauty. The height, which is important and typical for the flower, is between 70 and 170 centimeters. On special request, longer lengths are available; ask your account manager for more information. The season of Eremurus is spring and summer, starting with some luck in February and being available till September.



This ‘tail’ is a dream for designers! It’s an elegant flower that you can use in stunning (wedding) designs and centerpieces. Combine different colors and lengths of Eremurus for a spectacular effect. The flower is easy to combine but comes more to justice in large flower arrangements where you use the length of the stem. Looking for some summer vibes? Combine Eremurus with Celsoia, Helianthus, and Gladiolus. Or go for the more bohemian-inspired look with Eremurus, Kniphofia, Crocosmia, Delphinium, Viburnum, and your favorite type of green. If you want to go for big pieces, combine the Eremurus with other big flowers like Lilium, Strelitzia, Curcuma, and different types of green branches.


Check the stems for cracks and other damage when you receive the flowers. The flowers should not be squeezed; handle them with care. Cut the stems, place them into the water, and store the flowers in the cooler. Be aware that the flowers can be heavy, especially the top. As a result, the flower can easily fall out of the bucket. If you carefully handle the flowers, you can enjoy them for a long time. Eremurus is well known for its long vase life.
