Crocosmia (C. Orientalis) is a beautiful flowering plant for the garden and greenhouse, with flowers in shades of red, orange and yellow. This has long been a favourite of herbaceous borders and it is very easy to grow from seed or cuttings. Crocosmia grows into a bush with waxy green foliage and upright stems that produce clusters of orange flowers on slender spikes, early summer until autumn. Its flowers are followed by the small crocosmia seeds which are almost all used as dried flower heads in arrangements or dried as potpourri. A fabulous plant for both your garden and home!
