Thanks Milky :)

I've recently decided that i like these plants after all !
Much like Dahlias !

The reason for my change of heart is purely through seeing them on here - folks posting their plant pictures definately allows us to see things in a new light !!!!!

Where did you spring from Motinot :)
Thank you too :))

Just be careful it doesn't take over your garden,nice plant if kept under control.

I won't let it take over Stripes !!!

I've just looked that one up Grindle, it looks more open than S of The East, is it ?
I think i prefer it to mine :(

I'd originally wanted a paler one but S of T East was the least vivid i could find.

Grindle - I spotted E. McKenzie at the B&W Show - I thought it'd be better to wait and buy them as corms, so I didn't buy a pot with two stems for £5!!!!

Louise - it's a spectacular colour! You'd love it! Not a pale one, though - orange with red splashes in the throats.

I love the two tone colour of it, £5 was far too much to pay Spritz:o
a good nursery for crocosmia of all colours and sizes is here
if anything takes your fancy, I can get it and bring it with me next weekend :)))))

19 Sep, 2009 would be lovely to own Emily, Grindle!! If you're sure! Thank you...:-))
