Crocosmia ‘Lucifer.’ Reddest of the red Crocosmias (Montbretia in the UK), Crocosmia Lucifer bulbs present an irresistible temptation to hummingbirds. Its inflorescences boast up to twenty individual flowers that open over many days, and are rich with nectar and the exact colour loved by hummingbirds. Each flower spike may be up to 100cm (40″) tall, and they are very nice as long lasting cut flowers. Grow in full sun or part shade. Crocosmia is hardy to Zone 5 and deer resistant, so it’s useful for coastal gardens. Crocosmia blooms all summer long and can be divided every three years. It is drought tolerant, so it’s useful for xeriscaping.
