Buy Crocosmia × crocosmiiflora 'Carmin Brillant' montbretia corms: Sizzling late summer colour

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moderately fertile, humus-rich, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: August and October
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (may need winter protection in cold areas)

    Wiry branching stems rise above the foliage in summer carrying red buds which open to yellow-throated, carmine-red flowers. Their strap-shaped leaves are also attractive and provide a vertical accent.

  • Garden care: Plant the corms (bulbs) in spring approximately 8-10cm deep and 10-15cm apart. Resist removing the faded foliage in autumn and cover the crown of the plant with bracken or bark chips to protect the plant against frost damage. Lift and divide congested colonies in spring, planting the divided sections 8-10cm (3-4in) deep.

  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs

When these first arrived I wasn't sure they would be what I was hankering for. I planted them in clutches in pots initially and they were slow to start but did eventually emerge, They did not seem to mind being transferred to the garden soil and have flowered in their first year and look promising for this year.
