RE: eremurus

Hi Kitty,

Is this a lily I could grow here on the North border of Z-5?  Also what do
they look like, the reason is I wouldn't mind if a few came this way if they
could survive.  Also the discussion of Baptista; will that grow here? and if
so, which cultivar or variety would be best in my location.  Thanks in
advance for your advise.

My Foxtail Lilies (Eremurus x isabellinus 'Cleopatra', a Shelford Hybrid)
did not flower this year.  It was either because they were crowded or too
shaded, probably both.  I dug them up to put something else in, separated
them and laid them out to cure.  What now?  I thought I might try selling
them cheaply as is - I don't want to  pot them as they require a lot of
width, meaning a lot of soil - and since I can't be sure why they didn't
flower, I don't want to waste the soil or my space on them or ask much $.
(sale is end of August)  But they seem healthy and very flexible after
having just been dug.  I fear the roots will get more fragile as time passes
out of the soil.  What would you do with them?  Store in moist vermiculite?
Toss in the trash?  any ideas?
