Description
Emily Mckenzie is a butterfly magnet and makes fabulous, unique summer bouquets. A must-have in any summer garden!

Crocosmias are wildflowers in South Africa, and there are many species. Unlike the fire engine-red blooms of the common Crocosmia, George Davison boasts gorgeous, butter yellow blooms. Try planting both varieties together for a stunning, contrasting display of color. As a general rule, remember when planting Crocosmia bulbs, that these flowers are used to hot sun and gritty, fast-draining soil.

        I waited & waited for these to come up but they never did - All my other crocosmias were beautiful - these were planted in the same bed, so conditions were the same for all.
