Herbaceous perennials native to South Africa, crocosmias are best known in gardens by hybrids such as this nineteenth century introduction from the French plantsman Victor Lemoine. In summer, its spreading clumps of sword-like leaves give rise to knee-high, slender, arching spikes of brilliant tubular flowers with six spreading lobes. The gladiolus-like blooms are peachy yellow inside and red outside, with orange shadings. Plants grow from bulb-like corms that spread by underground stolons.

Crocus are members of the Iris family, Iridaceae. They bear chalice-shaped flowers of yellow, blue, purple, or white with long floral tubes that extend underground and may bloom in winter,...
