The rich, golden petals glow amid the sword shaped, upright foliage throughout the hot months. Crocosmia ‘Columbus’ has a long season of interest with colourful, purple buds, vibrant, two toned flowers and handsome seed pods. Plus birds and beneficial insects love them.

A great plant choice for structure and colour, this Crocosmia toughs out dry conditions and loves the sunshine.

Crocosmia flowers are good for picking and have a decent vase life. What is more, the plants are virtually pest and disease free as well as being easy care.

Crocosmia is quick to establish and will gradually spread into a healthy clump. They are low maintenance and will prosper for many years. The bulbs can be left to naturalise and can be divided to increase stocks every two to three years.

Plant in moderately fertile to humus rich, well drained soil in a sunny spot. Water in, then they become dry tolerant once established. They are also known as Montbretia.
