This is the time when the crocosmia ‘Lucifer’ brings vibrant colour to our summer border.
En masse the impact is quite stunning.

I see where the name comes from;devilishly lushly gorgeous! I don’t believe I’ve ever seen them before.
The blooms really are very striking – each is 15cms or more long. There is a smaller version more commonly referred to as montbretia. According to Wikipedia crocosmia is known in the US as coppertips or fairy stars.
