Planting+

You can plant the Crocosmia corms as soon as you receive them in the ground or in a patio container. Beware of late (night) frosts. When planting the tubers, make sure that the depth of the hole is twice as deep as the height of the tuber. A 5 cm corm should therefore be planted in a 10 cm hole. Space the corms approximately 10 cm apart. Loosen the soil well and plant the corms with the roots pointing downwards. Fill the hole with soil. The corms can be planted using a trowel or a special bulb planter. For a great display plant more corms into a larger hole.

Crocosmia makes a great combination plant

The bright red Crocosmia flowers look beautiful grouped in the flower border. The narrow, upright leaves are very decorative. This particular plant combines well with Gaillardia Aristata 'Kobold', silk flower, Asclepias Tuberosa and Kniphofia Uvaria 'Grandiflora'. This combination grows best in well-drained soil and in complete sunshine.

Care+

Water your Crocosmia regularly to prevent the soil around the bulbs from drying. The plant is fairly drought resistant so wet soil is definitely not desirable. You can leave the flower stalks with seed pods as they are still quite decorative and can be used in a dried flower arrangement. For an extra rich flowering, we recommend to regularly add plant food along with water during the summer.

Crocosmia can survive throughout the winter

The corms of Crocosmia are quite hardy. With a layer of fallen leaves or pine branches for protection, they will almost always survive throughout the winter. It is important that the ground is not too wet during this period. During the winter or spring, you can cut off its brown leaves.

Extra+

Crocosmia x crocosmiiflora is also known as Montbretia. The flowers grow in a double row along the stems which almost grow horizontally.
