A bold combination in our garden of Crocosmia Lucifer above Phlox Glow and Persicaria Clent Charm

Crocosmia

Massed, mixed colours of Crocosmia create a fiery blend with Heleniums and grasses.

(Common Name: Montbretia)

Lively plants with sword-shaped leaves and bright flowers along stiff stems in late summer. The plants grow form chains of corms and will spread, although the cultivated varieties are not invasive like the species. Some of the very large flowered types are only just hardy, but we have selected some tough types for most garden situations. They grow surprisingly well in shade and will cope with very hot sunny positions provided they do not dry out completely.
Propagate by division in Autumn (preferred) or Spring. Remove seed heads in early winter to avoid the odd self seed as these won't come true to type.

Crocosmia are members of the Iridaceae (Iris) family.
