Crocosmia Large Flowering Mix
A brilliant blaze of glowing amber, canary yellow, and bold crimson, this specially selected assortment of large-flowering Crocosmia provides extraordinary ornamental value throughout the season. Early in the summer, blades of upright, sword-like foliage give rise to wands of nib-like buds on wiry stems. These little buds unfurl into open, starry blooms full of vibrant colour, proving a magnet for pollinators. In the autumn, the petals fall and leave attractive, rounded, dark orange seedpods. Appealing at every stage of their development, these little bulbs will spread rapidly into dramatic drifts amongst borders and are a striking statement for large patio containers.
Select a sunny spot with well-drained, humus-rich soil. Plant corms 10cm deep, spaced 15cm apart in the soil.
Provide regular watering, ensuring the soil remains consistently moist.
From a bed of sword-shaped foliage, slender stems of fiery-blooms emerge, rising to heights of 50-90cm depending on the variety, from July to October.
Left undisturbed, corms will multiply easily below ground. Divide clumps every 3 years.
