Marge's Garden


Genus: Crocosmia.

Species: Crocosmia x crocosmiiflora.

This is another plant that grows like a weed in my garden, every year I attampt to get rid of it, every year it comes back

I have the orange flowered variety.

It is a good value plant, its leaves, being spear shaped are interesting, its flowers are striking, and the leaves as they die back, go brown, then limp, then collapse on to the ground. They are then quite easy to pull off and dispose of.

These grow round the base of my butterfly bush and make a good display.
