Crocosmia Fire King

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



An inferno of red-hot blooms, Crocosmia ‘Fire King’ will ignite your borders and containers with sizzling colour. The blazing blooms are perfect for including amongst a ‘hot’ colour scheme, and will provide an energising flare of radiant red amongst other palettes and mixed borders. Upright, lance-shaped foliage sets off the fine, dangling stems, and the vivid petals act as a beacon to bees and butterflies. Native to South Africa, the intense crimson of ‘Fire King’ is like watching a stunning sunset over the Kalahari Desert. Despite their tropical appearance, Crocosmia are surprisingly hardy and robust and will readily multiply when left undisturbed in a sunny spot.

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.
