@gardenfantic, I'm no expert on Eremurus! Can only advise from my personal experience and ofc your experiences may differ due to many variables including situation, cultivar and my gardening errors.
From browsing forums on the subject, the pattern seems to fit my example in that they are slow to clump up but this does not mean it won't flower this year. Surely, bulbs are only sold at flower maturity? It's just that it takes a few years for the plant to spread or start producing multi stems. I heard it resents disturbance and should only be divided every 15yrs, so my moving it about a couple of times certainly didn't help its flower potential.And to be honest, its only been in a happy situation for the last three years, so perhaps if I'd planted it there to begin with?
keep us informed about yours
