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.
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’.
Size: 2'–3' high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 6.
Crocosmia ‘Mistral’ (P-1927)

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! Digging Dog's mid March 2017 Newsletter Link
