  • It’s a crocosmia. I’ve tried to grow many times and haven’t had much luck, but I think they are beautiful flowers!

  • Crocosmia ‘Lucifer’, one of the better (and easily obtained) cultivars. It’s related to Gladiolus and requires about the same care, but is reliably hardy here. Easy to grow (although spider mites tend to be a problem) and hummingbirds love the flowers.

    • I’ve had problems several times where I plant the bulbs and they don’t come back. Have you grown in the garden or in pots? I’ve read that they don’t like wet soil so have thought maybe a pot is a better option (or to try to improve drainage). Lucifer is the kind I’ve planted.

  • Tire planters are the worst!!
