Late summer 'DRAMA QUEEN' that gets all the attention…sizzling deep orange flowers with scarlet red centers July > Sept – Pair these with red Penstemon and a bit of yellow and watch the heat…or pair with a blue aster and see how opposites attract!

A tough cormous evergreen perennial for light shade. Fans of tall, strappy, sword-like, bronze green foliage, with pale red stems, arise from clusters of Gladioli-like corms. It bears in late summer spikes of large orange starry, lily-like flowers with mahogany markings.A splendid and unusual perennial, a must for any keen gardener, quickly clumping.Rare.All crocosmias are wonderful plants and deserve to be more widely grown. They are particularly valued for their bright flowers that appear before the autumn flowers start and when many of the summer flowers are taking a bit of break.
