Product Information

With its brilliant red flowers this fantastic Crocosmia (Montbretia) really stand out in you garden.

Masses of bright red flowers are produced in freesia-like sprays in midsummer. This is a vigorous plant with sword-shaped, pleated, mid-green leaves. It is perfect for planting in large groups, bringing heat to your borders or in pots which will overflow with its arching leaves and stems, and the flowers are also excellent for cutting.

Choose a nice sunny spot and that isn't too dry - although can tolerate periods of drought once established and will naturalise if happy where they are. That said however, in general they will thrive in any conditions moist or dry soil, full sun or shade, shelter or exposed spots requiring almost no maintenance. Ideal for busy gardeners.

Hardy perennials (to at least -20C), crocosmia are some of the very easiest plants to grow. With the flowering stems reaching around 1.2m (4ft) tall, they are perfect for the middle and back of borders. Over the years the bulbs will multiply freely, so you'll be able to dig up the clumps and split them to spread them around the garden.

Supplied as 3 x established plants in 9cm pots, ready to plant.

Care Information

Planting Advice:

  • Corms should be planted like any other bulb and are easiest to plant if you just dig a hole about 10cm (4in) deep and space a handful about 2cm (1in) apart. This will give you a good-sized clump straight away and you can lift and divide clumps as they expand.
  • If you prefer a more spaced display, then plant them in clumps in groups of 5 about 10cm (4in) apart. If your soil is heavy, add some horticultural grit to the planting hole.

Aftercare Advice:

  • Water well and regularly.
  • Mulch corms in winter to preserve moisture.
  • Lift and divide clumps in spring if flowering diminishes.
  • Cut back dead leaves in spring.
