Crocosmia hybrids (Emily Mckenzie)

Genus: Crocosmia.

Species: Crocosmia x crocosmiiflora.

Purchased these via online catalog August 2007 and planted them in flowerbed along the east wall in the backyard. Described as an outstanding border plant, and highly effective when planted in bold groupings. Once established require little care. This variety does well in containers. Attracts hummingbirds and butterflies. Should be planted in full sun. Blooms Late summer and grows to a height of 2 feet.
