Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

Crocosmias are invaluable for late summer colour, but they also provide all-season foliage interest with their upright, sword-shaped leaves which provide striking accents amongst other mound-forming plants. ‘Emily McKenzie’ is a deservedly popular cultivar, bearing large, vivid orange, funnel-shaped flowers with a dark red throat carried on arching stems. Combines beautifully with other late-flowering, hot-coloured perennials such as Rudbeckias and Kniphofia. Height: 75cm (29”). Spread: 10cm (4”).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Grow Crocosmia in rich fertile, moist, well drained soil in full sun or semi shade. If necessary, improve soils by adding plenty of well rotted manure prior to planting. Plant Crocosmia corms at a depth of 10cm (4") and a distance of 10cm (4") apart.
Crocosmia requires little attention throughout the growing season. Remove old foliage and faded flower stems in autumn and apply a mulch of bark chips or well rotted compost to protect the corms over winter. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps of Crocosmia in spring to maintain their vigour.
