Fiery, orange and yellow blooms light up the arching stems of Crocosmia 'Scorchio'. This showy variety comes from the Firestars Series, specially bred for their bicolour flowers and dense clump forming habit. Like all Crocosmia, this reliable variety is hardy and easy to grow.
Crocosmia are relatives of the Gladioli family with having very similar attributes like their long sword like leaves and tall arching spiked stems that bare bright funnel shaped flowers throughout the summer. Although these deciduous plants are very easy plants to grow for the best results plant them in full sun on a well-drained site.
