Crocosmia ‘Carmine Brilliant’
at Digging Dog

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.

Dainty sprays of carmine colored flowers are a pleasing counterpoint to upright green foliage and bronzy green stems. A red-streaked yellow throat centers the open, pale tomato red face, while the outside of the petal is flushed with a richer red. The real jewel of ‘Carmine Brilliant’s crown, however, may be the stunning flower buds, which have a mustard colored band, a deep brick red tip and crimson-purple calyxes.

Blooms August–September.

Size: 20"–2' 0" high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 6.

Customer Comment:

“In a busy business, you may get lulled into thinking it's all about orders, supplies, shipping, etc.  But it's not just about that.  It's also about the happiness your flowers brought to a little girl who has endured a great deal in her young life, and the happiness that plants bring to us all, young and old.”

~Tim in New Hampshire
