Flowers July-September. Supplied in a 9cm pot.Adrian Bloom says . . . Here is a tale of two Crocosmias, both almost exactly 50 years old, and raised as seedlings at Bressingham by my father Alan Bloom and his helper Percy Piper. They were a new breed of strong, hardy hybrids of South African native species. The race to fame was easily won by ‘Lucifer’, today the best known Crocosmia worldwide, bright green bladed leaves and spectacular, eye catching vermilion flame flowers. An absolutely first class perennial which I am still planting in every garden I design. But let’s not forget about ‘Emberglow’, itself like ‘Lucifer’ an erect broad leaved plant with deep crimson red glowing flowers, which appear later than ‘Lucifer’ but equally hardy and colourful in summer. Both look great with perennials and grasses. Best in sun where not too dry.
