'Lucifer' is probably the most popular and widely grown crocosmia and produces decorative clumps of sword shaped leaves with brilliant wands of fiery red tubular flowers. 'Lucifer' is a very showy plant which blooms from mid to late summer for 4-6 weeks. A fabulous late season plant that provides striking colour at a time when others are starting to face. Recipient of the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
Crocosmia 'Lucifer' is a tall plant so be aware that it may need support on exposed sites
Crocosmia are best planted in fertile, well drained soil in the spring. They can tolerate full sun or partial shade, and best planted in groups. Ideal for border or containers.
Take some precautions in the winter to help protect the bulbs (for example apply a mulch annually) and water freely to assist in the growth.
