Crocosmia ‘Walberton Orange’
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.

This prized Crocosmia puts on an extraordinary floral presentation. Freesia-like at first glance, two rows of large, closely nestled blooms are upright and open-faced, perfectly poised for viewing. Enhanced by prominent decorative stamens, the vibrant orange petals backed in golden melon hues rise above attractive ribbed green blades, while orchestrating an ebullient symphony with Helenium ‘Zimbelstern’ and Anemone ‘Andrea Atkinson’.

Blooms August–September

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

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

Celebrated headliners of the late show!

Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.
