Buy Crocosmia Orange Pekoe ('Pek Or') (PBR) montbretia: A fiery mix of yellow, orange and red

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moderately fertile, humus-rich, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: July to September
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (needs winter protection in cold areas)

    The flaring trumpet-shaped flowers of this new montbretia are a lush mix of yellow and orange, with a reddish flush to the outer edges of the petals. They appear in profusion (particularly if grown in a sunny spot) over several months from midsummer, and they will give borders and pots a bold blast of colour. Its a strong grower and the flowers can be cut and added to the vase.

  • Garden care: Resist removing the faded foliage in autumn and cover the crown of the plant with bracken or bark chips to protect the plant against frost damage. Lift and divide congested colonies in spring, planting the divided sections 8-10cm (3-4in) deep.

I am an avid collector of the Crocosmia plant.....This plant is beautiful and is planted in a pot outside on the patio. I am pretty sure it is hardy down to -5 or so.
