Crocosmia Buttercup


Graceful, long, stiff stems end in v-shaped spikes of downward facing bright yellow trumpets. The many flower stems sit just above a dense mound of upright, grassy leaves. Of South African origin, Crocosmia originate in South Africa and are some of the best perennials for the summer-autumn border. They prefer full sun or part shade, and thrive in moisture retentive soil. Plant the corms at least 4 inches (10cm) deep and split the clump every 3-4 years to ensure a good supply of flowers.
