Overview
Our Crocosmia Mix features a warm blend of red, orange, and yellow blooms, all gracefully arching over sword-shaped stems.

Description

Try these little beauties anywhere you want color. Great for the front of borders, or in front of shrubs, or lining a walk.

Montbretias are named for the French botanist, Montbret, who accompanied Napoleon on his Egyptian campaign. This flower is a hybrid of two Crocosmia species from South Africa. Montbretias have flowers somewhat larger than Crocosmias.
