at Digging Dog

Crocosmia  Okavango

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.

A fantastic relatively new Bob Brown introduction, this distinctive Crocosmia bears the name of its native haunts, South Africa‘s Okavango River. Big broad green blades launch a flashy display of large peachy orange flowers, reminiscent of summertime fruit, crowded together on staunch stems. In addition to their luscious hue, the easily enjoyed outward facing blooms feature broad rounded petals, yellowish throats and extended stamens. ‘Okavango’ can be planted near Agapanthus ‘Storm Cloud’ for a lively floral presentation.

Blooms August–September.

Size: 2'–3' high x 18" 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!
