Crocosmia ‘Fire 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.

Back in 1905, Dutch plantsman E. H. Krelage developed this aptly named Crocosmia that premiers medium-sized yet copious deep crimson-scarlet blooms with tangerine highlights, yellow throats and maroon calyces. Dark buds unfurl the dazzling display above narrow, straight sword-shaped green leaves, and wield a red-hot union when accompanying Aconitum ‘Arendsii’ or Eryngium ‘Blue Glitter’.

Blooms August– September

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