Culture

Grow in medium moisture, moderately fertile, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Prefers full sun, but appreciates part shade in hot summer climates. Plant corms in spring after last frost date approximately 3-4” deep and 6” apart. Not reliably winter hardy in USDA Zone 5 where it needs a protected location and winter mulch. In order to insure winter survival in USDA Zone 5 and perhaps Zone 6A, digging up the corms in fall and storing them in a dry medium over winter (in somewhat the same manner as gladiolus) is an option that may be considered.

Noteworthy Characteristics

Crocosmia is a genus or about 7 species of cormous plants from grasslands in South Africa. Montbretias are good fresh cut flowers which are frequently used in commercial flower arrangements.

Genus name comes from the Greek words krokos meaning saffron and osme meaning a smell for the smell of dried flowers steeped in warm water.

Crocosmia 'Prince of Orange' features bright red and orange flowers. These blooms last through summer until fall. Crocosmia are great at attracting hummingbirds and other beneficial pollinators. 'Prince of Orange' can grow up to 30-36 inches tall and has a spread of 12-18 inches.

Garden Uses

Provides color and contrast to the perennial border. May be grown in containers where lifting in winter is perhaps easier.
