Description

Tall arching stems drip with fiery red trumpets above crimped, sword-like foliage. Crocosmia 'Lucifer' is well loved for its late summer display that erupts in a blaze of colour as other border perennials begin to fade. This RHS AGM variety is renowned for its vigour and resilience, adding structure and height to sunny herbaceous borders. The tall stems make eye-catching cut flowers too. Bulb size 8/10. Height: 100cm (39"). Spread: 10cm (4").

How to Grow
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.
More Info
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.
