Product Description

Of all the Crocosmia, this is my favourite. It’s taken a few years to build up some stock but here we are!!

With blooms larger than most other Crocosmias, ‘Star of the East’ evokes images of an illuminated sky and boasts slightly nodding, 9cm flowers, which are indeed star-shaped and brilliant. Well above green swordlike foliage, amidst burnt orange buds and clay coloured calyxes, each choice flat-faced bloom shines brightly with dusky orange on the outside & soft orange inside,
