Info

A tough, cormous, evergreen perennial for light shade. Fans of tall, strappy, mid green sword-like foliage rise from the Gladioli like corms. It bears in late summer spikes of bright, golden yellow, starry, lily-like flowers that light up any shady area. Quickly forms large open clumps which will flower for many months.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.

Here is a great Crocosmia to grow for cut flowers or just to enjoy in the garden. Not as invasive as the common Montbretia (Crocosmia x crocosmiflora), this one will form a clump only a couple of feet wide. And the flowers are prettier, too! The flowers are orange-red & produced on branched inflorescences that can get to be 3’ tall. Found growing along the edges of forests in South Africa, it prefers some shade & to be kept moist. It succeeds in most soils except heavy clays & bogs. Yellow dye is obtained from flowers. Hardy to -10 degrees F.
