x crocosmiiflora (Montbretia)


Pot Size : 9cm

This is the form of Crocosmia often seen in the West Country where it flourishes, bringing an orange haze to many coastlines. Commonly known as Montbretia it spreads fast where the conditions are right, producing downward-facing orange flowers with purple markings in the centre of each flower. Only plant it in a place where it can be restricted, and in fact away from the West Country and coastal areas it can be better behaved! We understand that this plant represents a memory of happy holidays, hence it's on our list but do be careful when choosing a planting place.
