Crocosmia Lucifer

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



One of the most popular Crocosmia, and with good reason, ‘Lucifer’ is a devilishly handsome addition to your summer display. The RHS have granted this outstanding variety an Award of Garden Merit for its dependability and vigour. One of the first Crocosmia to flower, the rows of neat buds burst into flickering, flame-red blooms, followed by striking burgundy seedpods. Standing proud amongst borders and large containers, the swaying stems are especially effective when paired with grasses, prairie perennials and as part of a ‘hot’ planting scheme. ‘Lucifer’ will multiply rapidly if left undisturbed, providing swathes of spectacular, fiery colour for your garden.

Care Guide

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.
