Planting and flowering details
  • Planting
  • You can plant the Crocosmia tubers as soon as you receive them in the ground or in a patio container. Beware of late (night) frosts. When planting the tubers, make sure that the depth of the hole is twice as deep as the height of the tuber. A 5 cm tuber should therefore be planted in a 10 cm hole. Space the tubers approximately 10 cm apart. Loosen the soil well and plant the tubers with the roots pointing downwards. Fill the hole again with soil. You can plant the tubers using a trowel or a special bulb planter. For larger groups plant more tubers into a larger hole.
    Crocosmia makes a great combination plant
    The orange flowers of Crocosmia look beautiful grouped in the flower border. The narrow, upright leaves are very decorative. This particular plant combines well with Gaillardia Aristata 'Kobold', silk flower, Asclepias Tuberosa and Kniphofia Uvaria 'Grandiflora'. This combination grows best in well-drained soil and in complete sunshine.

  • Care
  • Water your Crocosmia regularly to prevent the soil around the bulbs from drying. The plant is fairly drought resistant so wet soil is definitely not desirable. To prolong the flowering period, regularly remove the faded flowers. You can leave the flower stalks with seed pods as they are still quite decorative and can be used in a dried flower arrangement. For an extra rich flowering, we recommend to regularly add plant food along with water during the summer.
    Crocosmia can survive throughout the winter
    Crocosmia are quite hardy. With a layer of fallen leaves or pine branches for protection, they will almost always survive throughout the winter. It is important that the ground is not too wet during this period. During the winter or spring, you can cut off its brown leaves.
