The fiery, multi-tonal blooms of Chasmanthe ‘Saturnus are like beholding the spectacular radiance of a tropical sunset. Perfect for bringing some exotic flair to your summer display, the tubular flowers dazzle with their glowing oranges, reds, and yellows. The towering stems are dark maroon, creating marvellous contrast to the vivid flowers held in vertical rows. Chasmanthe can be incorporated into borders in particularly mild regions or planted in pots to be sheltered over winter in colder climes. Snip a few of these majestic stems for a unique cut-flower to bring drama to your floral arrangements.
A relative of the Crocosmia family, Chasmanthe thrive in sun or part shade in the garden.

Cut stems and foliage back in winter to make space for new growth in spring. Fully hardy requiring no winter protection.
