Dear all,
I have three species here which do well in the mediterranean climat. E
himalaicus, E. olgae and  just recently a turkish species E. tauricus.
Now since our nursery  has very sandy soil, Eremurus is doing extremely
well. The left overs I will now plant  on the top of some sand dunes in the
lawn.  The point made that they should not be trempled on,  seems very
valid. The large delicate central bud is not very farm from the surface.
After planting I will  mark the area withsome rocks  scattered around.
