Cultivar Notes - 'Lucifer'
C. 'Lucifer' adds a tropical flair to northern gardens. Beginning in midsummer and continuing thru early fall, brilliant flame red flowers stand in rows on wiry, gracefully arched stems that are perfect for cutting.
Genus Notes - Crocosmia
Cousins to the gladiola, Crocosmia's broad, sword-like leaves are attractive even when the plants are not in bloom and, from a design standpoint, are effective for adding a spiky textured element to the landscape. Spectacular color when in bloom. Protect with additional mulch in norther climates.
