Crocosmias, commonly called montbretia, make dense clumps of upright iris-like foliage. This is the perfect foil for their delicate freesia-shaped sprays of flowers which appear from midsummer through early autumn. 'Babylon' produces branched spikes of downward-facing flowers of bright orange, these open wider than some of the more traditional varieties to give an attractive star-like appearance. It is ideal for growing in swathes through the herbaceous border or for use in prairie-style plantings along with grasses. The flowers are excellent for cutting. Plants benefit from regular division to prevent the clumps from becoming overcrowded.
