Once described as an exotic looking gladiola, Crocosmia is a hardy bulb that enjoys sunny spots. The plant has sword-like leaves from which rise an arching stem of funnel shaped flowers. Different hybrids have delivered different heights, and colours, but 'Lucifer' is probably the most commonly found and most noticeable. The deep scarlet red is a joy on the hot days of summer. Full sun, sun.
Bloom time June-August
