Crocosmias are lovely plants for beds and borders. They grow into compact clumbs of sword-like leaves, with sprays of flowers in late summer, from July to September. This cultivated variety has attractive orange flowers with red throats, sitting on upright stems to a height of about 60cm.
Crocosmias look good growing in drifts in beds and borders. They are good cut flowers and attract pollinators into the garden.
Crocosmia ‘Emily McKenzie’ grows best in sun to part shade and fertile well drained soils. The plants die back in winter and start growing again in spring. They can be left in the ground overwinter. In colder gardens, mulch over the bulbs to protect them from heavy frost.
Pack of 10 bulbs. Plant in March to May directly into unfrozen ground. Planting instructions are printed on the packet.
