We first admired this plant when we visited Dick Fulcher’s in Devon a long while back when he claimed that this was the best new Crocosmia. I think that he was probably right and I have yet to see anything better. I prefer the clear bright yellow colours in the high summer more than the brooding reds of some Crocosmia anyhow. Upright and quite tall with long flower tresses. Bare root bulbs.
These lovely staples of the summer herbaceous border will not flourish on poor dry soil - they must have rich soil and summer moisture. They are hardy once established deeply, but do benefit from winter mulching to protect any early shoots, particularly in colder areas. Plant 4-6"(10-15cm) apart and 6 " deep and water well on planting. Alternatively plant in a pot and plant out in June, after all chance of frost is past. It is helpful to plan to split the clumps every 3-4years as this helps to prevent them declining. A good clear yellow, that goes well in any mixed border. An upright form and quite tall (36") flowering in August.
Height 36” (90cm)
