Crocosmia ‘Zeal Tan’
at Digging Dog
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 ‘Zeal Tan’
Introduced by British plantsman Terry Jones in the 1990s, this medium-sized Crocosmia sprouts smooth sword-style dark forest greenery beneath fervid-hued flowers. Deep olive and chocolate-tinted stems lift sprays of outward-facing, vibrant reddish scarlet blossoms, each with a sunny yellow eye centering widely-spaced, somewhat recurving petals. Yellow-blooming Rudbeckia fulgida ‘Viette's Little Suzy’ and the dark purple-infused foliage of Aster ‘Black Bete’ enhance ‘Zeal Tan’s bright floral display.
Size: 18"–2' 0" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 6.
