GENERAL DESCRIPTION

"CROCOSMIA" IS WORTH A PLACE IN ALL BUT THE SMALLEST OF GARDENS. THE SEVEN OR SO CROCOSMIA SPECIES ALL ORIGINATE FROM SOUTH AFRICA AND SINCE THE 19TH CENTURY CONSIDERABLE HYBRIDIZING HAS GIVEN US SOME WONDERFUL SELECTIONS FOR ADDING COLOUR TO THE SUMMER GARDEN. STRICTLY SPEAKING THEY SHOULD BE CLASSED AS BULBS OR CORMS, BUT THE HARDIER TYPES IN PARTICULAR ARE LOOKED UPON AS PERENNIALS.

ALL SIX CULTIVARS HAVE STOOD THE TEST OF TIME. "CROCOSMIA" PRODUCES STRAPPY EVERGREEN LEAVES AND UPRIGHT SWORDS OF GOLDEN YELLOW, RED OR ORANGE WITH A SCARLET CENTRE, FREESIA-LIKE FLOWERS. IT CREATES AN EYE-CATCHING DISPLAY FOR SEVERAL WEEKS. THE COMBINATION OF FOLIAGE, FLOWER AND ATTRACTIVE SEEDHEADS GIVE "CROCOSMIA" GREAT GARDEN VALUE, ESPECIALLY IN PLANT COMBINATIONS.

PLANT "CROCOSMIA" 8-10 CMS DEEP AND ABOUT 15-20 CMS APART THEY LIKE FERTILE WELL-DRAINED SOIL THAT IS MOIST IN SPRING AND SUMMER BUT DRIER IN WINTER. IT DOES BEST IN FULL TO PART SUN. IF YOU DELAY PLANTING YOUR BULBS INTO MAY YOU TEND TO GET FLOWERS THAT LAST LONGER IN THE AUTUMN, THAN IN THE PEAK OF THE SUMMER HEAT.

THIS PLEASING SUMMER BULB MAKES A STRIKING AND UNUSUAL ACCENT FOR PERENNIAL BORDERS AND MIXED PLANTINGS. IT ALSO WORKS WELL IN CONTAINERS. "CROCOSMIA" FLOWERS ARE ATTRACTIVE TO BEES AND WILL BRIGHTEN ANY LARGE, SUNNY BORDER. THESE PERENNIALS ARE MOST IMPRESSIVE WHEN PLANTED IN LARGE CLUMPS.

WHEN FROST THREATENS IN THE LATE AUTUMN, DIG UP THE BULBS IF THEY ARE IN THE GROUND CAREFULLY LEAVING SOIL AROUND THE ROOTS AND PUT THEM IN A WELL-VENTILATED SHADY PLACE ON THEIR SIDES UNTIL THE LEAVES WITHER.
