Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
Crocosmia, Lucifer Montbretia, Montbretia
Lucifer montbretia is a beautiful member if the iris family that displays elegant, arching sprays of showy, scarlet red, tubular flowers in early to midsummer. It is a tall plant that bears neat clumps of long, sword-like leaves of bright green. All montbretias grow from corms, which can be dug up and stored overwinter where plants are marginally hardy, and grow best in sites with full to part sun and average, well drained soil. Lucifer's flowers are attractive to hummingbirds and will brighten any large, sunny border. These perennials are most impressive when planted in large clumps.
