Common Name: Montbretia, Crocosmia
Exotic-looking, bright orange-yellow flowers stand tightly together in rows on wiry, gracefully arched stems in summer. The elegant stems make wonderful, long-lasting cut flowers and the shorter inter-bud length of this selection lends itself to better floral impact. It demonstrates good vigor, long flowering, and reliable hardiness to zone 5, characteristics that often elude Crocosmia.
Crocosmia’s broad, sword-like leaves are attractive even when the plants are not in bloom and, from a design standpoint, are effective for adding a spiky textured element to the landscape.
Attracts bees and hummingbirds. Blooms late summer.
