This amazing 1912 hybrid from the late George Davison is still one of the top crocosmias nearly a century later. Crocosmia 'Star of the East' spreads quite slowly when compared to its more prolific siblings. In midsummer, the clumps are topped with 32" tall spikes, adorned with large, 4" wide flowers that open, a few each day, from the bottom of the stalk to the top...a hummingbird treat. Each flower is a stunning brilliant orange, separated from the creamy center by light brushes of maroon. According to the RHS magazine "The Garden"..."Crocosmia 'Star of the East' has flowers of a quality and substance which has never been equaled." We agree!
