Crocosmia George Davidson

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



Widely considered to be the father of Crocosmia breeding in the UK, George Davison was Head Gardener at Westwick Hall in Norfolk during the 1900s – this award-winning variety proudly bears his name. Echoing the golden glow of September, Crocosmia ‘George Davison’ displays sprays of rich, warm yellow blooms throughout late summer and autumn. The RHS have acknowledged the health and strength of this cultivar with their highly esteemed Award of Garden Merit. This variety is especially vigorous and will swiftly spread into impressive swathes of cheerful colour. Dig and divide the bulbs every couple of years to keep them in check.

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.
