These blooms look like a fairytale knight’s lance and fittingly, they’re also known as king’s spears. The Emerus Foxtrot’s stately stems are densely populated with small, star-shaped flowers. These are followed by round seedpods that bear winged seeds.
Originally from central Asia, we’re awfully glad these blooms doing so well in the UK. They make excellent backing singers for focal flowers, so tuck them around the main event.
