Set of 50 Mixed Crocosmia Bulbs
Mixed Crocosmia Bulbs
These fantastic Crocosmia Montbretia will add colour and height to your beds and borders this year, coming alive in mid-summer with an explosion of yellow, orange and red blooms. A plant of African heritage, they do prefer a nice sunny spot and appreciate a regular supply of water - although can tolerate periods of drought once established and will naturalise if happy where they are. That said however, in general they will thrive in any conditions moist or dry soil, full sun or shade, shelter or exposed spots requiring almost no maintenance so ideal for busy gardeners. Considering the corms are dull and uninspiring, crocosmia is a remarkable, multi-talented plant - not only do the flowers look amazing, but the upright, leaves add texture and interest to any planting scheme.
The sprays of flowers that follow are freesia-like trumpets which make ideal flowers for cutting and can also be left in place where the small seed pods bring autumn interest to the garden.
Hardy perennials (to at least -20C), crocosmia are some of the very easiest plants to grow, reaching around 60-100cm tall, they are perfect for the middle and back of borders.
Supplied as a pack of 50 mixed bulbs, ready to plant. Height/spread: 60-90cm (2-3ft).
