With a native range from central to western Asia, Eremurus species hail from rocky semi-deserts to dry grassland, but adapt readily to well-drained flower borders and prairie-style plantings. In The English Flower Garden (1883), wild-gardening advocate William Robinson recommends planting Eremurus “in a natural and informal bold groups with some of the finest hardy plants, with a background of shrubs.” The Foxtail Lily works well as a cut flower.
