Montbretia, 'Lucifer' (Crocosmia crocosmiiflora)
2 10 $2.00 - $10.00
A cousin to iris and gladiolas, Crocosmia is a hardy perennial that produces clumps of tall green sword-shaped leaves, with towering stems that bear arching splays of funnel-shaped bright red blossoms that open sequentially into an upright row. Few flowers summon the spirit of high summer so blazingly as Crocosmia "Lucifer". Hummingbirds and butterflies are highly attracted to the brilliant red flowers, and they make outstanding cut flowers too. The plant will die back in the winter, but will quickly regrow the following spring. Please note that Crocosmia "Lucifer" grown from seed will not flower until its second year of growth. Full sun.
