Crocosmia ‘Mistral’
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.

Crocosmia ‘Mistral’ full sun  partial shade  new plant

Hailing from the Dutch nursery Langedijk, this floriferous hybrid Croscosmia closely resembles Crocosmia masoniorum more so than its other parent, Crocosmia paniculata. Blade-like ribbed green leaves forge a tasteful forest, unleashing remarkable upturned sprays of toasty yellow-throated red blooms perched on narrow arching stems. A top-notch addition to cottage gardens, borders or coastal plantings, ‘Mistral’s flowers bewitch the butterflies and emblazon perennials such as Dahlia ‘Bishop Of York’, Monarda ‘Jacob Cline’ and Helenium ‘Zimbelstern’.

Blooms August–September

Size: 2' 0"–3' 0" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 6.

Our featured plant: Hydrangea quercifolia 'Sikes Dwarf'

Perennials that cool down a hot summer day, refreshing foliage, soothing blooms, last chance to take advantage of our summer sale!

Bring sparkling beauty to your August plantings

Perhaps you’re looking for some soothing floral or foliar accents on a hot summer day! We’ve found that snowy white, clear pink, pale yellow and deep blue blooms coupled with silver, bluish green or emerald-toned leaves become refreshing counterpoints to warmer-hued flowers. They offer a place where your eye can rest, much like cleansing your palette when tasting wine. These shades meld the spicy-colored flowers of many Achillea, Crocosmia, Dahlia, Geum, Helenium, Kniphofia, Rudbeckia and Salvia.

Our next guided Saturday Strolls is August 19th., followed by September 16th & October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
