Crocosmia 'Miss Scarlet' PPAF



Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
We believe Rhett, this Crocosmia is no lady. Really, are you looking for some refined creature when you buy a Crocosmia? I think not - it's hussies, hotties, tramps and trollops that get's it done in the garden during the dog days of summer when we need some over the top flamboyance - save the demure for spring 'cause it clashes with Mojitos! This has big heads of bright red flowers which are spaced closely together amplifying the floral impact. Nicely compact just 24" tall at best and remains in a tight clump. This is from David Tristram of Walberton Nursery in the UK.
