X Crocosmiiflora
This fabulous new, sterile, dwarf Crocosmia comes from the UK breeding program of David Tristam. This little gem is one of the best Crocosmia that I have grown. Stems that rise just above the soft green sword-like leaves are topped, starting in July and continuing until September, with brilliant red-orange (RHS 41A) outfacing flowers. H. 50cm. Only available in USA.
