Description

A breakthrough variety with a melange of big and bold, peachy apricot blooms. Dense heads of large, rounded, broad-petalled flowers that last for ages on strong stout stems. For health and vigour this has to be one of the finest recent introductions of crocosmia. A strong grower but a slow clumper, so no danger of it running wild through your beds. Established plants can be divided after 3 to 4 years.

Care Tips

Mulch well before the first frosts or lift and overwinter frost-free. Plants left in the garden should be cut to ground level in early spring before new foliage emerges.
