Crocosmia are of South African origin. Crocosmia originate in South Africa and are some of the best perennials for the summer-autumn border. They prefer full sun or part shade, and thrive in moisture retentive soil. Plant the corms at least 4 inches (10cm) deep and split the clump every 3-4 years to ensure a good supply of flowers.

GUIDE TO CROCOSMIA POT SIZES
Our Crocosmia are supplied in 9cm pots which contain 1 to 3 corms, dependant on the variety. Each corm should produce 3 or more growing shoots in a season, and each shoot will then go on to form a new corm the following season.
A single 9cm pot should form a good sized clump in 2-3 years. For a more 'instant' clump we suggest that you plant three 9cm pots of the same variety close to each other.
In the spring and summer Crocosmia are sent with them leaves trimmed. In the autumn and winter we usually trim the old leaves and flower stems back to 2" (5cm) before posting. Plants in pots should be protected from frost until they are planted.
All orders are sent with cultivation tips.
WE HOPE YOU ENJOY YOUR CROCOSMIA!
