Crocosmia 'George Davison'

Hardy Corm

Arching stems tipped with an explosion of starry, golden blooms appear above the sword-like, linear foliage. This well loved variety is tough and resilient, multiplying quickly to form large clumps when established. The colourful blooms make lovely cut flowers, but leave a few for the insects who love these nectar rich blooms. For maximum impact plant hardy Crocosmia 'George Davison' in large groups, and let them wander through sunny herbaceous borders. Bulb size 8. Height: 90cm (35"). Spread: 10cm (4").

Grow Crocosmia in rich fertile, moist, well drained soil in full sun or semi shade. If necessary, improve soils by adding plenty of well rotted manure prior to planting. Plant Crocosmia corms at a depth of 10cm (4") and a distance of 10cm (4") apart.
Crocosmia requires little attention throughout the growing season. Remove old foliage and faded flower stems in autumn and apply a mulch of bark chips or well rotted compost to protect the corms over winter. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps of Crocosmia in spring to maintain their vigour.
