Crocosmia x crocosmiiflora ‘Emily McKenzie’ displays arching spikes of orange flowers with maroon rings surrounding yellow eyes. The green, sword-like foliage also provides interest in the garden. Divide every 3-4 years for best flower production.
Montbretia adds long lasting color to mixed perennial borders, containers or mass plantings. Prefers light, humus-rich, well-drained soil. A winter mulch in cooler climates is helpful.
