Evergreen sword-like foliage is particularly useful in gravel plantings for vertical definition.

Chris Marchant - Orchard Dene Nursery

  • Position: full sun or light shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May to July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Reliable and long-lived perennial which provides attractive vertical accents to a planting. Sword like leaves encircle slender wiry stems. Simple pure white flowers open progressively up each stem to culminate in a fine airy show. Associates well with fine grasses like Stipa tenuissima in a gravel planting, or with simple daisies like Anthemis 'Sauce Hollandaise' in the front of a border.

  • Garden care: Selectively cut out old foliage to reveal attractive new growth. Dislikes a waterlogged soil. Divide congested plants in spring or autumn. Leave flower spikes to mature and form attractive seed heads which will self-seed if permitted.

    Comments about Crocus Libertia grandiflora:

    This has got to be one of the easiest plants to keep by far, all it needs is some food and cutting back the dead each year, it will grow and bloom with more abundance each year.

    • Q:

      I just bought a 9 cm pot, can I plant it outside straightaway or should I wait a bit more for the weather to improve (It's been snowing on and off here the last few weeks!)? Also, can I plant it in a big container or does it do better in the ground?

        These plants are fully hardy so can be planted outside now. They do make fine specimen plants for pots, so you do have the option to pot it up if you think it may look a little lost in the border.

    • Q:

      Ulf Nordfjell's plant list

      Dear Crocus, Please can you help. I admired Ulf Nordfjell's Daily telegraph planting at Chelsea and am inspired by it for a garden square re planting that I am organising, but wondered if you could identify the plant in the two metal pots in the centre left of your title picture. Many thanks for your help. Suzanne
