Eremurius

Nancy zone 6May 9, 2011

Several years ago I purchased white eremurius & it was so lovely each spring. I've tried other colors, but the white has done best for me & I'm down to just 1 of Romance color. The white had multiplied some & I had been debating dividing them til I read that eremurius doesn't like to be moved or divided. Apparently true because I accidentally dug into one when they were dormant. I immediately replanted the one I dug, it came up the next spring as a very tiny plant. That was 3 years ago. I must have scared the other 2 because since then none of the 3 have bloomed since. Is there something anyone can recommend to help them along?

I know good drainage is very important. My soil is pretty good, but I dug a hole & added a bit of gravel before I planted. They did well for a few years, I just don't know what is going on now.
