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 love this plant, but it takes about two years to flower. The dear, of which we have many, have not bothered this plant.

      USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

      To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

      • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
      • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
