(aka: C. 'Blacro') Stunning, stunning, stunning...the only word to describe this marvelous introduction from England's Blooms of Bressingham. We have grown a lot of crocosmias and this is at the top of the heap...sturdy, not overly invasive, and very weather tolerant! From underground rhizomes, flat, green, gladiolus-like leaves emerge in early spring. By mid-July, the clumps are smothered with 30" tall spikes of orange buds (RHS 25A) that open into golden-yellow (RHS 17B) hummingbird acclaimed flowers! We have only recently discovered the morons in charge of naming this plant actually gave this the cultivar name 'Blacro'...off with their heads!
