Crocosmia ‘Little Redhead’
at Digging Dog

Crocosmia  Little Redhead

August–early October.

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.

Size: 18"–2' 0" high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 6.

Customer Comment:

“Thank you for your continued great service and excellent plants.... all the plants arrived in perfect condition. Healthy, and ready to bloom...the primrose produced a beautiful flower, just two weeks after arrival! We have always been impressed with the careful packaging, size and hardiness of your plant stock. We ordered Alstroemeria many years ago that have flowered every year, and are more beautiful with time. Thanks again!”
