Description

You’ll love the easy-to-grow, gentle giant that is Paul Bunyan™ Crocosmia. Crocosmias grow as wildflowers in South Africa, and they are known for their vibrant flowers and elegant arching form. A florist favorite with sturdy stems, airy texture, and long-lasting cuttings, Crocosmia also make a beautiful focal point in the summer garden. Flowers attract hummingbirds and butterflies, and the plants are generally deer and rabbit resistant. Graceful sword-shaped foliage forms mounds and creates an attractive backdrop to these and other blooms in the garden. In general, these flowers perform best in hot sun and gritty, fast-draining soil. In colder regions, gardeners may not experience blooms the first year, but once established, get ready for a fabulous display! When happy, it will reproduce freely underground, creating plenty of bulbs to share with friends.
