Product Description
Crocosmia Emily Mckenzie 'Montbretia'

Montbretias are named after the French botanist Monsieur de Montbret who accompanied Napoleon in the Egypt campaign of 1798. They are now correctly grouped into the Crocosmia genus whose name is derived from the Greek (krokos) for saffron and (osme) for smell which describes the saffron scent that is given off by the dried flowers when rehydrated. The common Garden Monbretia is a hybrid between Crocosmia Pottsii and Crocosmia Aurea, two species which grow naturally near streams or in woodland in South Africa.

Emily McKenzie has been selected to give large burnt-orange flowers with a prominent chocolate blotch and darker foliage. It is a perfect addition to the late-flowering garden. 

Although it will grow well in shade, it will bloom much better in a sunny position.

It flowers for a long period of time, well into late summer.

The spear like foliage adds a wonderful contrast to the more traditional leaf shapes.

This plant is grown in a 3 litre pot.
