Pulled out of the trial area last year and re-located in my garden for a final inspection, this large flowered beauty has illuminated a shadier part of the garden. Currently nameless, just tagged as Oranges and Lemons, it's a keeper and I will be bulking this one up. I can scan a trial area of Crocosmias these days and can pick the stand outs immediately.
Most of my trial Crocosmias are second year plants. The rain has really brought them on and most are intent on flowering, but all the plants with C paniculata, i.e., the taller plants in their make up will not realise their full size until next year, but I will be posting some beauties over the next couple of weeks.
