Eremurus Ruiter Hybr. Cleopatra, or Cleopatra’s Needle, is a striking plant with spikes of pale to burnt orange flowers with dark red mid-ribs on tall, bare stems. The flowers open progressively from bottom to top with the lower flowers having longer stems, shortening as they get closer to the top, giving them a spikey shape. Plant in sunny, sandy, well drained sheltered areas of gardens, prairies, banks, slopes, borders, beds or gravel gardens. A wonderful addition to add height and interest to your display.
