We are always pleased to share this special crocosmia, but its multiplication rate is far slower than the overly vigorous and consequently better-known cultivars. Crocosmia 'Solfaterre' boasts chocolate brown, iris-like foliage which is topped in early summer with clusters of apricot-yellow flowers...a hummingbird attractant. Its unique color combination makes it a real treat to design within a mixed border. Crocosmia 'Solfaterre' has been awarded the prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM) from the Royal Horticultural Society.
