Crocosmia Emily Mackenzie for Olive Oil !

As you can see Barbara, I have started my collection, but just can't seem to find a decent sized Lucifer !

that's a beautiful one to have Rose. Would you like some Lucifer I have a large clump I can split some off for you if you would like. There is a shorter variety than this one of mine (its about 5ft tall) the shorter one is red the same as the tall one. Just pm me your address I will send some over to you with pleasure if you have a spot at the back of the border. They need support too as they tend to flop over. :O)

Thank you so much Barbara ! I have been everywhere looking for Lucifer and if I do find it, its a thin pitiful looking thing ! xx

I have to support my Lucifer too,Rose..I bought two of those tall circular plant supports when I had my Delphiniums,which died off the year after,so they came in so handy.I put them in place before the foliage got too high,with great success..I hated to see them tied with twine to a tall cane,as they looked all bunched up,and not natural..:o) x

They are a bit pricey,Rose..I think I paid about a tenner each,but they are so sturdy,and do the job perfectly..I have been more than satisfied . In fact,useful for anything that needs supporting..and before you ask,.No,I'm not on commission from a Garden Centre ! Lol
