When Crocosmia puts on its full display it practically announces the arrival of high summer. Crocosmia King of Orange features a wide range of colours, from scarlet to yellow and all oranges between. The long arching flower stalks that appear above dark green foliage can grow 70-100cm (28-40") tall. The plants are tough, perennial, deer resistant, and hardy to Zone 4, so they make a good permanent resident for the corner of the garden or flower border. The stems are long lasting as cut flowers, and the plants will grow in full sun to part shade.

Bulbs are easy to plant and easy to grow. Flower Bulbs are broken down into two very general groups – Fall planting bulbs benefit from sitting in cold soil. Spring planting bulbs do not require cold soil to trigger flowering. Fall planting bulbs can be planted any time between late September and January, but most gardeners plant fall bulbs in October and November, about the same time you would plant garlic. Fall planting bulbs will bloom the following spring and early summer. Spring planting bulbs should be sunk into the ground in March and April. They tend to bloom later in the spring, into mid-summer.
