Crocosmia ‘Red King’
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.

Heralding a passionate array of toasty colors, this smaller sized cultivar was selected by British gardener John Fitt and introduced in 1929. Hearty, lance-shaped green leaves support a multitude of sizzling salsa-red, star-styled blooms, which showcase luminous yellow centers fringed with darker tangerine shades.

Blooms August – September.

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