Crocosmia  Lucifer

<i>Crocosmia</i> ‘Lucifer’

Crocosmia

Montbretia

Coveted by florists, these brightly colored flowers bloom along the length of tall, arching spikes, which emerge from handsome clumps of swordlike foliage. If given well drained soil and divided every two to three years, this fountain-shaped plant will continue to pour spectacular color into your garden for a long, long time.

Crocosmia ‘Lucifer’ full sun  partial shade

The fiery fountain of open blooms, borne in a bold upright fashion, along a single side of its wiry purple-tinted stem, will burn this excellent cut flower into your heart. A valiant forest of stiffly pleated green sword-like foliage tempers the hot display. Give ‘Lucifer’ his due by showing off his devilishly fine color next to Campanula lactiflora ‘Pritchard’s Variety’.

Blooms February–March

Size: 4' 0"–4-1/2' high x 2-1/2'–3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 6.

As Summer draws to a close....

September is a transitory month in the garden. As summer’s end approaches, the shadows are growing longer and the days are becoming shorter. This time of year may find some landscapes a tad lackluster. When designing your garden, you may wish to include plants that remain perky thoughout the season or experience their heyday now. The plants featured in this newsletter provide a lot of late season oomph and promise to beckon you down the pathways of your garden.

Our next guided Saturday Stroll is September 16th., followed by October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
