Product Description
Crocosmia Lucifer Montbretia

Crocosmias produce dense clumps of upright iris like foliage. In midsummer this makes a good background for the small profuse flowers. Lucifer is an aptly named variety because its flowers are the hottest colour of all - a searing flame red.
It is one of the most popular crocosmia because of its flame red flowers that appear on gently arching stems. These contrast well with the fresh green sword like foliage. It has great vigour and produces imposing clumps in the late summer border.

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. It is 4 feet tall but self supporting; no need to be staked. It grows true from seed and will self seed if allowed.

Some people still refer to crocosmias as montbretia. This name comes from the French botanist Monsieur de Montbret, but the correct term is definitely crocosmia from the Greek krokos, meaning saffron, and osme meaning smell, alluding to the saffron scent given off by the dried flowers when placed in water.

We will send 2 litre or 3 litre pots depending on availability at time of order.
