Crocosmia ‘John Boots’
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.

Dutch nurseryman Willem Heemskerk introduced this blithe hummingbird darling in 2000, though some speculate it was originally raised by Paul Boots. Upright grass-green blades and graceful arching stems boost panicles of starry, flat-faced canary-yellow blooms with wide-spaced petals, paler centers and golden flip sides. Ideal for a border or container, ‘John Boots’s cheery blossoms and burnt orange seed heads make stellar additions to cut arrangements.

Blooms August–September

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