Nice job birdy
That's an impressive eremurus Ws. How long did it take to produce that many spikes?
The eremurus started life as one of those dried up little bulbs in a plastic bag many years ago. I can't exactly remember how many years but it has also travelled around my garden a little bit to find a decent spot, thus my errors added to its lacklustre existence.
It only started flowering about four years ago with a single spike. Then three the year after. Then 6-7 and then it went nuts with the nearly twenty flower spikes. By now it was placed in the correct position and loving it.
The bulb heads are now quite a lot bigger than the thing I bought in the packet, so much like peonies, they get fatter with age.
