Delivered to you in March / April
Early flowering (for a Crocosmia) with magnificent contrasts between the deep green leaves and the crimson red flowers. A sun lover and one of those plants that most people recognise from afar for good reason.
This plant/cultivar has been awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit because it has proved to be reliable in appropriate conditions and a good performing plant.
Will not flourish on poor dry soil - they must have rich soil and summer moisture. Plant 3-4" (8-10cm) deep, 4" (10cm) apart or pot to plant out in June. They are hardy once established deeply but do benefit from winter mulching to protect the early shoots. Thick clumps should be lifted and divided in Spring to maintain vigour.
Height 36" (90cm)
