'Zeal Giant' AGM

AGM Award

Pot Size : 9cm

Availability : Ready now

An impressive tall and majestic Crocosmia, bred by Terry Jones in Devon, producing upward facing salmon-orange flowers with darker stripes on the lower petals, on strong arching stems, tinged purple. The enormous pleated leaves are a feature in their own right, and the individual corms can reach the size of an apple! In autumn the seed heads are held horizontally for weeks on end. This is a wonderful variety for the back of a border, or better still as an architectural feature plant in the garden. It fully deserves its AGM status.
