Great name 'Lucifer'. For the fiery red flowers evoking the flames of Hell. If it had been named today, 'Lucifer' likely would have been shortened to W. and then we would have to get rid of the plant which would be too bad because the tubular flowers are manna for Hummingbirds.

This is the classic montbretia cultivar in our region's gardens. 'Lucifer' has tall stems with pleated, spiked, green leaves and upward-facing, bright red flowers on arching stems from mid to late summer. Easy and tough and provides lots of colour. It is a close-up of the buds of 'Lucifer' that appears on all of our signage. A hummingbird favourite.

The fiery fountain of open red blooms, borne in an upright fashion along a single side of its wiry, purple-tinted stem, will burn this excellent cut flower into your heart. A valiant forest of stiffly pleated, medium green, swordlike foliage highlights the hot display. Give 'Lucifer' his due by showing off his devilishly fine color next to Campanula lactiflora 'Prichard's Variety' and counterpose his bold form with the refined delicacy of Thalictrum 'Hewitt's Double'.

A tough, cormous, evergreen perennial for light shade. Fans of tall, strappy, mid green sword-like foliage, rise from clusters of Gladioli-like corms. It bears in late summer, spikes of bright crimson, starry, lily-like flowers.This is the Crocosmia commonly seen in english gardening magazines and books.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.

Want to add some fiery color to your mid summer garden? Devilishly colored orange red freesia like blossoms are displayed in arching sprays on sturdy 3-4' stems above sword like foliage. Corms will multiply rapidly, and are easy to lift at the end of the summer if you do not want to take the chance of them not wintering over. We've found that they are perfectly hardy in zone 6 if provided with a insulative layer of winter mulch, especially in areas where there isn't reliable snow cover.
