@ Fairygirl - is the crocosmia you're thinking of 'Solfaterre'? Smaller than the rest, with a bronzy tint to the foliage? I've got a small clump in a pot that I dug up last year, MUST REPLANT TODAY!
it is also less invasive, and more tender than most.

Doesn't ring a bell fig. I like 'Emily McKenzie' but I think the one I'm thinking of might be 'Citronella'.

Hi guys........

If you buy crocosmia as dry corms in a bag they need to be soaked overnight...... that is the only way you will get them to grow. When you plant them water them in very well too.

If you all want to know more about crocosmia, check out last night's GW, Carol did a feature on them!
