Crocosmia ‘Little Redhead’
at Digging Dog

Crocosmia  Little Redhead

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.

We have David Tristram to thank for this richly colored, long blooming Crocosmia. Each stunning flower bud features a crimson-purple calyx, a mustard-hued band and a deep red tip. Along graceful stems, the easily viewed, outward-facing, tomato-red blooms brightened by sunny yellow throats are spaced just right to heighten the fervid, floral spectacle.

Easily tucked into a small-sized garden in front of Salvia ‘Black and Blue’, ‘Little Redhead’ spices things up, while its composed, bladed greenery keeps a lower profile than our other Crocosmia offerings.

Blooms August–early October.

Size: 18"–2' high x 2' wide; hardy to zone 6.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
