As a general rule, remember when planting South African bulbs, that these flowers are used to hot sun and gritty, fast-draining soil.'

Never comes up!
from Hazel Green, AL
I purchased 20 of these bulbs last year and none of them came up. I got replacements, thank you American Meadows, and put them in this Spring. ONLY TWO out of 20 came up! I have grown these in California with great success, but would not recommend them to anyone living in the South!I am deeply disappointed.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This looks beautiful, but I never saw it
from North Braddock, PA
I was really excited about this plant, its size, its flowers, the fact that it is perennial in my climate. But the planting instructions insisted on a pretty deep planting, which I observed. When none of the bulbs came up a month later, I dug down and found a couple and replanted them closer to the surface. A couple finally came up, but have yet to flower. They probably missed the right season. I would like to try them again, I will just plant using my own judgement.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Used for groups along a rail fence. Plants grew fast, numerous branching, really looked vigorous and healthy.

All of mine came to the party
I have read the negative comments and did not have this experience. I ordered 8 packs and all happily grew for me. I kept the soil moist in an area the is mostly sunny. Have yet to bloom.

Two strikes and out
from Cottonwood, AZ
About Me Getting Started
For two years in a row I've ordered and received crocosmia "lucifer" corms from American Meadows. I've followed planting directions closely. Last year I ordered 5 and this year I ordered two packs, or 10 corm altogether. NOT A SINGLE ONE HAS EVEN COME UP. Last year when none of the 5 came up I ordered some from a seller in Holland. 4 of 5 came up, but the planting date was too late by then, and they only got about 10 inches high, and then did not survive the winter. I'll not order again from American Meadows.
