PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).
|Crocosmia x crocosmiiflora 'Lucifer' AGM|
|A stunning plant with flame-red sprays of flowers which open sequentially and are borne on arching stems above long, strap-like foliage. Flowers are followed by attractive tapering seed heads.|
|Sowing and/or growing instructions|
|Plant corms 4in/11cm deep. Seeds can be direct sown. For more reliable results, sow in winter or Feb-May under glass. Keep moist but not wet. Germination 30-90 days. Transplant seedlings into 3in pots and acclimatise to outdoor conditions before planting out 12in/30cm apart. Crcosmea don't like crowding, so split mature plants if they fail to flower.|
