Eremurus robustus
Foxtail lily

The specific epithet is derived from the Greek stenos (narrow) and phyllon (leaf) to give “with narrow leaves”.
Eremurus × isabellinus 'Pinokkio'
Desert candle 'Pinokkio'
Desert candle 'Pinokkio' is noted for its compact size and its attractive flowers. It grows captivating flower spikes that bloom from the bottom up, revealing hundreds of small, rusty orange flowers. This cultivar is derived from a hybrid of Eremurus robustus and Eremurus stenophyllus.
Eremurus isabellinus 'Oase'
Eremurus isabellinus 'Oase'
Eremurus isabellinus 'Oase' is a pale peach color whilst other cultivars from the hybrid of the Eremurus olgae and Eremurus stenophyllus range in shades of yellow.

Eremurus × isabellinus 'Romance'
Desert candle 'Romance'
Desert candle 'Romance' boasts towering spires adorned with a cascade of densely packed, peach-hued blossoms. Its dramatic, towering presence, reaching up to 6 feet tall, is a beacon in late spring to early summer gardens. The grass-like foliage anchors this hardy perennial, which thrives under the full sun in well-drained soils, embodying the arid homelands from which it hails.
Eremurus × isabellinus 'Cleopatra'
Desert candle 'Cleopatra'
Desert candle 'Cleopatra' is characterized by its statuesque spires of vibrant orange flowers, towering above the garden on stems that can reach several feet high. Its narrow, strap-like leaves at the base form a contrast to the dramatic, lofty blooms that emerge in late spring to early summer. Adapting well to well-drained soil and full sun, desert candle 'Cleopatra' thrives in conditions that mimic its native arid habitats. The plant's showy inflorescences make it a focal point in any landscape design.

Dracaena
Dracaena
Dracaena are popular house plants that are easy to grow. They can tolerate low-light conditions and require little watering. Their leaves range from variegated to dark green. Their characteristic traits include woody stems that grow slowly but offer a striking appearance for small spaces such as apartments or offices.
Ficus
Fig trees
Fig trees have been cultivated in many regions for their fruits, particularly the common fig, F. carica. Most of the species have edible fruits, although the common fig is the only one of commercial value. Fig trees are also important food sources for wildlife in the tropics, including monkeys, bats, and insects.
Rubus
Brambles
Brambles are members of the rose family, and there are hundreds of different types to be found throughout the European countryside. They have been culturally significant for centuries; Christian folklore stories hold that when the devil was thrown from heaven, he landed on a bramble bush. Their vigorous growth habit can tangle into native plants and take over.
Acer
Maples
The popular tree family known as maples change the color of their leaves in the fall. Many cultural traditions encourage people to watch the colors change, such as momijigari in Japan. Maples popular options for bonsai art. Alternately, their sap is used to create maple syrup.
Prunus
Prunus
Prunus is a genus of flowering fruit trees that includes almonds, cherries, plums, peaches, nectarines, and apricots. These are often known as "stone fruits" because their pits are large seeds or "stones." When prunus trees are damaged, they exhibit "gummosis," a condition in which the tree's gum (similar to sap) is secreted to the bark to help heal external wounds.
Solanum
Nightshades
Nightshades is a large and diverse genus of plants, with more than 1500 different types worldwide. This genus incorporates both important staple food crops like tomato, potato, and eggplant, but also dangerous poisonous plants from the nightshade family. The name was coined by Pliny the Elder almost two thousand years ago.
Rosa
Roses
Most species of roses are shrubs or climbing plants that have showy flowers and sharp thorns. They are commonly cultivated for cut flowers or as ornamental plants in gardens due to their attractive appearance, pleasant fragrance, and cultural significance in many countries. The rose hips (fruits) can also be used in jams and teas.
Quercus
Oaks
Oaks are among the world's longest-lived trees, sometimes growing for over 1,000 years! The oldest known oak tree is in the southern United States and is over 1,500 years old. Oaks produce an exceedingly popular type of wood which is used to make different products, from furniture and flooring to wine barrels and even cosmetic creams.
